Why We Love This

Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov. New York: Putnams, 1958. 11th printing. One of the supreme books of the 1950s, with an undiminished power to shock, this remains one of the best-written novels of all time. Nabokov's hero manages to be funny and sleazy, while remaining rather innocent in his infatuation for his stepdaughter. Nabokov's extraordinary precision awes us into understanding the obsession. Jacket has slight aging and edge wear, otherwise good.
