Top 40 Book Club : Top 40 Book Club Reads 2019
NON-FICTION 44 TOP 40 BOOK CLUB READS What should I read next? Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov The Real Lolita Sarah Weinman Part case history, part literary essay, this book looks into real events that may have inspired Vladimir Nabokov’s controversial novel, Lolita. In 1948, 11-year-old Florence ‘Sally’ Horner is kidnapped by ex-convict Frank La Salle. What follows is two years of captivity during which Sally is moved around the country to avoid detection. Meanwhile, Nabokov has been grappling with the composition of his new masterpiece for years, although he has always denied it was Sally’s horrific ordeal that really inspired his final version of Lolita. Perfect for fans of real life crime and Lolita, or Nabokov’s writing in general.
