What We're Reading Now
"Nabokov has a curious way of eliciting deep emotions through his passionate and meaningful portrayals of the dark side of human nature. "
Lindsay Deel - Books-A-Million, Williamsburg, VA
Awe and exhiliration--along with heartbreak and mordant wit--abound in Lolita, Nabokov's most famous and controversial novel, which tells the story of the aging Humbert Humbert's obsessive, devouring, and doomed passion for the nymphet Dolores Haze. Lolita is also the story of a hypercivilized European colliding with the cheerful barbarism of postwar America. Most of all, it is a meditation on love--love as outrage and hallucination, madness and transformation.
