Fishface | 14096 comments This one, by Susan Weinman, is due out Sept 6th of this year, but I also see it's the 50th anniversary edition and came out previously under the title The Real Lolita: The Kidnapping of Sally Horner and the Novel that Scandalized the World. I was astounded to learn when I found out about this upcoming release that Lolita is based on this true story.


BRNTerri This book comes out on 9/11. It's not an anniversary edition.

Fishface | 14096 comments The cover says it is! Is it the anniversary of the crime maybe?


BRNTerri No, it's not the anniversary of anything. I have a finished print copy of the book and I guess they changed the title before publication.
