Part of the The Penguin Vladimir Nabokov Hardback Collection series
Humbert Humbert - scholar, aesthete and romantic - has fallen completely and utterly in love with Lolita Haze, his landlady's gum-snapping, silky skinned twelve-year-old daughter.
Reluctantly agreeing to marry Mrs Haze just to be close to Lolita, Humbert suffers greatly in the pursuit of romance; but when Lo herself starts looking for attention elsewhere, he will carry her off on a desperate cross-country misadventure, all in the name of Love.
Hilarious, flamboyant, heart-breaking and full of ingenious word play, "Lolita" is an immaculate, unforgettable masterpiece of obsession, delusion and lust.
