Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov

A middle-aged professor, Humbert Humbert, confesses in this novel to his obsessive infatuation with, and pursuit and seduction of, a 12-year old nymphet. Their story is not sordid but full of yearning, word play and jokes - ironic and biting, often erotic. Lolita is one of the immortal love stories.
Vladimir Nabokov was born in St. Petersburg.
