who says novelists who pen classics that are made into movies don't have style when it comes to cruelly catching butterflies? even though i approve of this look i do have a pet peeve with the brilliant vladimir nabokov. lovers of literature will forever be debating the merits of 'lolita.' i have never felt the need to join in the chess match of wits regarding the impossible tease and the havoc she wreaks on old humbert. i love the book and i love sue lyon's performance in the 1962 kubrick film. however, i raise my hand in protest in defense of all winged creatures!
