Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov

There is a surprisingly sweet aspect to this 60s cover of Nabokov's classic Lolita, with its explosion of flowers and butterflies. Except for the subtle knowing look in the girl's eyes, you might not guess the contents of this controversial novel.

Just the second book by Nabokov that I've read (Pnin being the first and perhaps my favorite of the two), reading Lolita has only made me want to read more of his work.
