English wasn’t Vladimir Nabokov’s first language but you wouldn’t guess it if you read Lolita, which revolves around the story of a man who grows ever more obsessed with his 12-year-old stepdaughter, Dolores Haze. Layers of intricate language and a fascinating — albeit disturbing — protagonist made this book a controversial bestseller when it was first published in 1955. Half a century later, it remains a burning study of obsession and the vices that control the human heart.
