Two brief comments a propos of the T-shirt which depicts Nabokov as a
nympholept:

The biographical note included in the Grasset French edition of Laughter in
the Dark (Chambre obscure) describes VN as, among other things, an "amateur
de jeunes filles".

In 1992 there appeared in the journal Psychoanalysis and contemporary
thought an article by Brandon Centerwell entitled "Vladimir Nabokov: A Case
Study in Pedophilia".

I kid you not.
