Lolita, Paperback


'Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-lee-ta: the tip of my tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth.

Lo. Lee. Ta'. Humbert Humbert is a middle-aged, frustrated college professor.

In love with his landlady's twelve-year-old daughter Lolita, he'll do anything to possess her.

Unable and unwilling to stop himself, he is prepared to commit any crime to get what he wants.

Is he in love or insane? A silver-tongued poet or a pervert? A tortured soul or a monster? Or is he all of these?
