Vladimir Nabokov’s ‘Lolita’ is one of the most beloved and notorious novels of all time. And yet, very few of its readers know that the subject of the novel was inspired by a real-life case: the 1948 abduction of eleven-year-old Sally Horner. Weaving together suspenseful crime narrative, cultural and social history, and literary investigation, ‘The Real Lolita’ tells Sally Horner’s full story for the very first time.
