Lolita

"In 1954 Vladimir Nabokov asked one American publisher to consider 'a firebomb that I have just finished putting together.' The explosive device: Lolita, his morality play about a middle-aged European's obsession with a 12-year-old American girl. Two years later, the New York Times called it 'great art.' Other reviewers staked a higher moral ground (the editor of the London Sunday Express declaring it 'the filthiest book I've ever read'). Since then, the sinuous novel has never ceased to astound."
