Vladimir Nabokov. Glory. 1932/1971

It seems like a rather conventional Bildungsroman for the most part. The main character, Martin Edelweiss, is an athletic, not quite believable, aimless Russian emigré. The translation, by Dmitri Nabokov, is rather interesting. It read well in English but never conceals its origins.
