Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-lee-ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Lee. Ta.
If there’s a better novel than Vladimir Nabokov’s masterpiece Lolita, I’ve yet to encounter that book.
Lolita is a tour de force, its luster increasing with the passage of time (the book was first published in 1955).
As long as the art form of novels exist, Lolita will continue to stand tall among the very best.
As a matter of fact, the word Lolita came into popular usage because of Nabokov’s famous novel.
