More Lolita. My Love , My Lo.

“I was not really prepared for her fits of disorganized boredom, intense and vehement griping, her sprawling, droopy, dopey eyed style, and what is called ‘goofing off’ – a kind of diffused clowning which she thought was tough in a boyish hoodlum way.” – ‘Lolita’ p.150

Just, just so brilliant! I’m tempted to write down every one of my favorite sentences, but by then I’d be quoting almost the entire book.

 ‘…”offensive” is frequently but a synonym for “unusual;” and a great work of art is of course always original, and thus by its very nature should come as a more or less shocking surprise.’
