Lo's Diary

Lo's Diary Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Now, in Pia Pera's controversial new book, Lolita speaks for herself in her own naked voice. Listening to her tale, readers enter a universe in which events, apparently the same as in Nabokov's novel, are radically different. Truths clash, collide, and ultimately diverge. Nabokov's Lolita is not Lolita's story, but her seducer's. The Lolita of that novel is a projection of Humbert's erotic imagination. Lo's Diary tells her story in her own voice, bringing into question the version told by her seducer in his account. Lo's Diary is an investigation into the myth that is Lolita. In Pia Pera's novel, Lolita uncovers her true self and tells us everything Humbert never told, never saw, and never imagined.
