Lolita

"The only convincing love story of our century." --"Vanity Fair" ""Lolita" blazes with a perversity of a most original kind. For Mr. Nabokov has distilled from his shocking material hundred-proof intellectual farce..."Lolita" seems an assertion of the power of the comic spirit to wrest delight and truth from the most outlandish materials. It is one of the funniest serious novels I have ever read; and the vision of its abominable hero, who never deludes or excuses himself, brings into grotesque relief the cant, the vulgarity, and the hypocritical conventions that pervade the human comedy." --"Atlantic Monthly" "Intensely lyrical and wildly funny." --"Time" "The conjunction of a sense of humor with a sense of horror [results in] satire of a very special kind, in which vice or folly is regarded not so much with scorn as with profound dismay and a measure of tragic sympathy...The reciprocal flow of irony gives to both the characters and their surroundings the peculiar intensity of significance that attends the highest art." --"The New Yorker" ""Lolita" is an authentic work of art which compels our immediate response and serious reflection-a revealing and indispensable comedy of horrors." --"San Francisco Chronicle" "From the Hardcover edition."

Doloris on the dotted line
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 23.11.2017
Bewertet: Einband: gebundene Ausgabe

One of my favourite books of all time. It's a book I have to read again every few years. A deeply moving book, timeless in its controversy. It made me cry, laugh out loud or feel disgust, when I started to feel pity for Humbert Humbert.
