Summary
"An audacious first novel sure to cause much fuss among Nabokov's admirers and critics alike, Pia Pera has given Lolita a voice. We start in the office of John Ray, the fictional author and professional boor who introduced Lolita. Now employed by the Olympia press in Paris, he is shocked when a certain young mother, Dolores Schlegel (formerly "Maze"), walks in his door, offers up her diary, and after a few hasty words, walks back out." "By turns bratty and broadly comic, vulgar and vulnerable, Pia Pera's Lolita is a flesh and blood heroine created to fill the void left by the enigmatic but fundamentally passive figure onto which Humbert projected his fantasies."--BOOK JACKET
