Who is Lolita? The Nabokov literary classic has sparked infinite discussion in the 65 years since its release, but the cultural memory the book has left behind lives more in romance and fashion aesthetics than a cautionary tale about a deceptive predator and his young prey. Jamie Loftus wants to know how we got here, and this series traces Lolita -- the person, Dolores Haze -- from her literary origin to current status as a doomed icon.

"Absolutely LOVED this podcast. Jamie really did a great job breaking down “Lolita” from its origins of the Nabokov book to its adaptations and sinister cult classic and style we know it to be. This podcast come with a lot of trigger warnings ( which Jamie provides before each episode), but it’s definitely worth a listen. "
