My Most Difficult Book: The Story of Lolita Thirty years ago, in November 1959, one of the most brilliant and controversial novels of this century was published in Britain. It sold out on the first day. The author was
Vladimir Nabokov 'Lolita is a very special favourite of mine. It was my most difficult book, the book that treated a theme which was so distant, so remote from my own emotional life, that it gave me a very special pleasure to use my combinational talent to make it real.'
Nabokov's masterpiece tells the story of Humbert Humbert and his obsession with a 12-year-old nymphet. In 1989 the power and dazzling technique of the novel remain intact, while its capacity to shock is perhaps even greater.
With novelists Martin Amis , A.S. Byatt and Edmund White , and Nabokov's biographer Dr Brian Boyd , Omnibus examines the origins and composition of Vladimir Nabokov 's Lolita. Director CHRISTOPHER SYKES
Omnibus editor ANDREW SNELL
