More about this item

James Mason reads

selections

from Nabokov's classic novel, Lolita.

 

Actor James Mason reprises his role as Humbert Humbert by reading selections from Lolita. Since the novel is told in first person, from Humbert Humbert's point of view, this recording adds a new dimension to Mason's performance in Stanley Kubrick's film version.

 

Originally a tough sell to publishers because of its taboo subject matter, Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita is now recognized as a twentieth-century classic. The story of a middle-aged man's overpowering desire to recreate a lost love of his childhood, Lolita somehow transcends its own eroticism and is, finally, one of the greatest love stories of all time.

 

Running time is approximately one hour.
