What am I currently reading?
One of the best (best-written) books I have read in a long while.
Nabokov’s controversial, mesmerizing, Lolita, published in 1955.
In 1966, speaking of censorship, and related topics, the author said:
Neither can I do anything to please critics belonging to the good old school of "projected biography," who examine an author's work, which they do not understand, through the prism of his life, which they do not know.
-- Vladimir Nabokov (1899-1977), The Waltz Invention, foreword. –
Have a great Thursday!
