1959 National Book Award winner and finalists.

50 Years Later, 'Lolita' Still Seduces Readers, NPR, 9/15/2005.  (Lolita was first published in France in 1955.)

Full disclosure:  Lolita is the only book by Nabokov that Retiring Guy has read.

Still in demand.  (LINKcat screenshot)

And Stanley Kubrick did a great job translating the book to film.
