Perspectives on Lolita

Reading Lolita in Tehran, a memoir of an English literature professor in revolutionary Iran, gives an interesting perspective on Lolita and Nabokov in general. Her reading of Lolita is that it is fundamentally about one person stealing another's life - we know how Lolita ended up but we don't know what she could have or would have become.

Hello! It's me, Lotusflower77, from bookcrossing.com

I am delighted you shared your book blog with me - I am going to have to visit often. I am also very excited about "Caitlin in London". The topics you cover are of great interest to me, so I will be bookmarking that one, too.
