New Blog: One Isn’t Enough

Friends: I hope you will join me at my new blog, Lolita, Scrubbed, where I have begun to serialize a new edit of Nabokov’s Lolita based on the taste and whims of Gerard Kibbey, a guy I made up. Watch and cringe as Kibbey has his way with one of the greatest novels of the century that just happened.

I’m shooting for verisimilitude here, so I won’t use my name on the blog itself. This is not to trick people into thinking Gerard Kibbey is a real person, but instead to create a self-contained fictional space. (I briefly considered starting the blog in character while never owning up to it, but I think the “Is he, like, serious, dude?” concerns that could arise would be both distracting and done-to-death.

If you’d like to follow along with the original, there is a free full-text PDF edition of the original Lolita here.

    Brilliant idea, Gabe. I look forward to reading about Humbert Humbert’s more subdued attraction to Lo. About time this novel was made more reasonable.

    Thanks, dude! That’s what we all look to literature for, isn’t it? Reasonableness?
