Summary
In 1948, Sally Horner was just eleven years old when she was kidnapped by a man claiming to be an FBI agent. Seven years later, Vladimir Nabokov published Lolita, perhaps the most seminal novel of the twentieth century. Weinman's investigation into how the two are connected is a thrilling, heartbreaking mix of literary scholarship and true-crime writing, casting a new light on the dark inspiration for a modern classic--Adapted from jacket
