Orville Prescott Quotes
“Lolita... is undeniably news in the world of books. Unfortunately, it is bad news. There are two equally serious reasons why it isn't worth any adult reader’s attention. The first is that it is dull, dull, dull in a pretentious, florid and archly fatuous fashion. The second is that it is repulsive.”
- Description: In addition to being an author in his own right, Prescott wrote as a book critic in the 1950's for the New York Times.
