“Lolita” seems to be an inspiration to a host of pretty young singers. The song interpreted by “Belinda” (Cf. http://www.vagalume.com.br/belinda/lolita.html ) even states that, although it was “Nabokob” was who wrote L*lita’s story, she was the one who invented it (or him?) : “Sin duda Nabokob/Fue quien lo escribio/Pero en realidad/  Fue yo quien lo invento”. *

Well, if the novel “L*lita” were simply a story about a young easy-going nymphet  then, perhaps, her claims could spark some kind of sense: there must have been countless “L*litas” under other names over the ages living their adventures before VN set down his own version and made all the difference.
