I just watched an interesting program on the BBC about Nabokov. I cannot help feeling that he would be fired from, or not hired by, an American university these days for writing Lolita. The “feminists” would not stand for it. The fact that it is a deeply moral book, and a great work of art, would not make an ounce of difference. What do readers think?

    Lolita is a brave, honest and GREAT work of art.
    America – whose people managed to elect someone like Trump to be their President, what can we say?
