It might be a good idea if among these you could find one with a main character who doesn't have as a mentioned trait the requirement for sex every 48 hours...just in case anyone doesn't get how special a writer N was. :)

Pnin is about a professor of the same name at a college much like Cornell, although as the book goes on, the narrator gradually seems to push Pnin out of the picture.

Bend Sinister is on the followers of a philosophy of sameness and the politics of "The Party of the Average Man". A dystopia, published in 1947.

Transparent Things is a short novel about an American editor's four trips to Switzerland, and deals in part with Nabokov's recurrent themes of time and memory.
