“We Would All Go to Jail If the Thing Were Published”: On How Lolita First Appeared in Print

    I taught for thirty plus years. There was a lot that I could not talk about in class. Seventh grade in particular can be quicksand. Say the wrong thing and it can misinterpreted by a student and end up blowing up in your face. Sometimes it was done maliciously and sometimes innocently.
