A 21st century Lolita

image

A new arrival at Winston towers today struck a chord a may to December story ala Lolita for a new generation .Héloïse of the title is trying to seduce a doctor forty years older than herself .On press release it does say Lolita for a modern age , although I hate the term “the new ” with this book it seems hard to avoid the comparison or not to even mention it .My evening view is the wonderful debut film from Stuart Murd och of Belle and Sebastian a film inspired by his side band god help the girl which is also the title of the film .

    When you get your fill of pubescence, pedophilia, and adolescent-girls-without-boundaries, watch the movie Copenhagen (director is Mark Raso) — that will bring back the balance. It’s a 2014 movie and available on Netflix etc.

    I’ve read and reviewed this. It has NOTHING to do with Lolita. It’s a shame it is marketed as such.
    It is a great book.
