American Gods Trailer. Definitely excited to see this, can’t wait to see more of Mr. Wednesday by Ian McShane and I also really want to see Mr. Nancy by Orlando Jones. Great casting for this show. I can’t believe HBO passed on this.
Artists Max Temesu & Linn Olofsdotter each produced covers (shown above) truly befitting of Nabokov’s Lolita. Their illustrations are to remind readers that Lolita was never about a protagonist in love, but a man inappropriately obsessed with a young girl. Lolita was being relentlessly pursued throughout this entire novel; love wasn’t in the equation when Vladimir Nabokov penned this book. Vanity Fair’s Gregor von Rezzor says it best,
“Lolita is not about love, because love is always mutual; Lolita is about obsession, which is never, ever love, and Nabokov himself was so disappointed that people did not understand this and take away the right message… For how could anyone call this feeding frenzy of selfishness, devouring, and destruction ‘love’?“
