Lolita Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I re-read this in creating Black Heart Magazine‘s “Lolita issue,” and it’s still brilliant. Vanity Fair described it as “the world’s only true love story.” An odd description of a book that is, ultimately, about molesting a minor, and yet it’s also true. Humbert Humbert, the despicable and unreliable narrator, manages to convince us all that he loved the under-age Lolita, and that this book is his love letter to her. Definitely worth reading, whether you love language, a good moral quandary, or tales of lust and mayhem. It’s got it all.
