Mark Twain wrote: Figures often beguile me, particularly when I have the arranging of them myself; in which case the remark attributed to Disraeli would often apply with justice and force: "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics."

A middle-aged man describes his attraction to prepubescent girls and his decision this time to pursue his newest interest, a twelve-year-old, russet-haired maiden roller-skating in a park. With an afterword by the author's son and translator Dmitri Nabokov. Precursor to Lolita.
This is beautifully written, but as a result, it requires too much concentration to easily follow the story and enjoy it. Richard Davidson's narration is fabulous.
