One of the most celebrated books in history and notable for its controversial subject, the novel was adapted into a film by Stanley Kubrick in 1962, and again in 1997 by Adrian Lyne in addition to several adaptations for stage. "Lolita blazes with a perversity of a most original kind…It is one of the funniest serious novels I have ever read…”. Atlantic Monthly.
