Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov ranked # 4 on The Modern Library's Top 100 Novels list as selected by its Board Members.

Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov - Just The Good Stuff Lolita is a novel by Vladimir Nabokov, first published in 1955. The novel is both famous for its innovative style and infamous for its controversial subject. The novel's narrator and main character, Humbert Humbert, becomes sexually obsessed with a prepubescent girl.

The novel is a tragicomedy narrated by Humbert, who riddles the narrative with wordplay and his wry observations of American culture.

Because of the subject matter, Nabokov had difficulty finding a publisher, eventually resorting to Olympia Press, a publisher of "erotica" in Paris, which published Lolita in 1955. A favorable notice by English author Graham Greene led to widespread critical admiration for the book, and its eventual U.S. publication on August 18, 1958, by G.P. Putnam's Sons. Today, it is considered by many one of the finest novels written in the 20th century.
