Vladimir Nabokov shares his enthusiasm for Lolita jackets from around the world
The good folks at Vintage/Anchor pointed us to the following video on YouTube. Particularly delightful is Nabokov’s quip about the Turkish cover (“I'm not sure who is—who is older!”).
See a previous Reader’s Almanac post about the reception of Lolita upon its publication—and the hostile rejection letters Nabokov initially received.
