Line(s) of the Day #Lolita

Lolita book cover

My car is limping, Dolores Haze,
And the last long lap is the hardest,
And I shall be dumped where the weed decays,
And the rest is rust and stardust.

The hugely controversial book Lolita (1955) by Russia author Vladimir Nabokov. Widely considered one of literature’s finest novels, its provocative subject matter also provided heated debate as to whether it should be widely released. My thanks to the very lovely Nicola for reminding me of it.
