I'm a big Nabokov fan, however. I adore Pale Fire--it's probably one of my favourite books, ever. So when I got the last of his books, the unfinished Laura, which is tossed around at being connected to Lolita, I thought I'd sit down and read that book first. I know only the very basics of The Original of Laura, so I don't know if I need to do this, but I'm doing it, and I'm enjoying Lolita this time around. For whatever reason, the first time I read it, I missed the humour in the book. I suspect that Adrian Lyne's film adaptation of Lolita might have had an undue influence on my reading at the time--I was working as a projectionist back then, and running the film when I decided to read the book. There wasn't a whole lot of intentional humour in it, if I remember right.
But Nabokov's Lolita is funny, and really, I'm glad I'm giving it a go again.
Anyhow, as you saw, yesterday I did an interview with Kaaron Warren. It was a bit of a spur of the moment thing we decided to do, but it was kind of fun, and if people enjoyed reading it, I might actually go out and find the occasional person to interview for this blog.
