so to kick off my summer reading list, i decided to re-read lolita.
i can't believe that he wrote this in english first(russian being his first language). nabakov is the real deal. every sentence is so purely, poetically crafted. okey dokey, so the movie. while the stanley kubrick adaptation is the ultimate classic, i really have always loved adrian lyne's provocative, updated interpretation.
behold, the visual delight that is rocking my summer reading...
****oh, and as a side note, i just found out nabokov was a lepidopterist. the man collected butterflies. awesome.
****and the only thing missing from this film is the 1960s red heart-shaped glasses.
