Who is Lolita? The Nabokov literary classic has sparked infinite discussion in the 65 years since its release, but the cultural memory the book has left behind lives more in romance and fashion aesthetics than a cautionary tale about a deceptive predator and his young prey. Jamie Loftus wants to know how we got here, and this series traces Lolita -- the person, Dolores Haze -- from her literary origin to current status as a doomed icon.

Interesting and thoughtful

She is an amazing and articulate host speaking on a unique topic. It’s a truly incredible podcast. Highly recommend.

Such a boring monotone…

Jaime is so good when she’s with Robert Evans. However on her own she’s so boring, quiet and mumbly…. Such a shame she makes this topic so boring.

Thoughtful, nuanced, fierce

Loved listening to this—Jamie, this was a great and thoughtful exploration that had me thinking a lot about my own experiences exploring power and desperate loneliness as a young girl crushing on older men. Thank you so much. (Also loved Robert as Nabokov!)
