Rachel's Random Recommendation #52: Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov Lolita (1955) by Vladimir Nabokov

When I first read this as a teenager, I was floored and exhilarated by the energy and beauty of Nabokov's prose. This story of a creepy middle-aged man's seduction of a young girl is really about much more than that, and the fact that the seducer is the narrator adds another layer to Nabokov's exploration of morality, desire, and obsession. If you haven't read this yet, read it now.
