    Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita is a dark and daring story of obsessive love and transgression. Humbert Humbert's lust for his pubescent step-daughter, Lolita, shocked readers when it was first published in the 1950s; yet the novel was also celebrated for its beautifully lyrical writing. Almost fifty years after its first publication, Lolita remains a powerful tale of perversion and love gone wrong.
    Sparking controversy with its release in 1955, Nakabov's novel quickly attained a classic status, becoming one of the most well-known and certainly most controversial examples of 20th Century literature. It has been adapted many times for the stage, for films, opera, Broadway musicals and ballet. Widely considered his best work, this book is a must read for anyone who is a fan of the classic genre.
