  Lolita is a serious book with a serious purpose. I hope the public will accept it as such. That said, Nabokov was becoming desperate. Looking back he wondered if he would have made the deal with Girondias had he known the publisher’s reputation. “Alas, I probably would, though less cheerfully.” The Annotated Lolita is essential.
