THE REAL LOLITA The Kidnapping of Sally Horner and the Novel that Scandalized the World

by | Read by Cassandra Campbell

Biography & Memoir • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Who was Sally Horner? And to what extent did Vladimir Nabokov base his famous novel LOLITA directly on Sally's tragic story? These are the questions that Sarah Weinman explores through intense research and excellent writing. Narrator Cassandra Campbell's experience with narrating both fiction and nonfiction is put to good use as she conveys the factual details uncovered by Weinman's research and interviews. The reimagined story of Sally Horner's life is presented in a Truman Capote style of re-creating the emotions and potential motivations of the real-life characters. Listeners may find themselves intrigued by Horner's story. But if they're not interested in Nabokov and LOLITA, they may question Weinman's obsessive inquiry.
