A guide to your child’s development

Every month, we at Design Sorbet are going to cook up a very special mystery literature box for you readers to decipher before the end of the post. Each month we will be revealing a different book, or a piece of literature that we have personally read, liked and that we want to suggest to you. Once the box is opened, you will be guided with clues along the way that will vary from folded illustrations, to quotes and other related items. These symbolic objects will serve as teasers for literature lovers, in order to discover the unknown book. (The title for this project will be a randomly selected quote from the chosen book / literature piece.)



Have you guessed? It’s of course ‘Lolita’ by Vladimir Nabokov

Full Description 

“The most controversial classic novel of the 20th century,”Lolita” tells the story of aging Hubert Humbert who has an obsessive, devouring, and doomed passion for the nymphet, Dolores Haze. It is also the story of a hypercivilized European colliding with the cheerful barbarism of postwar America. All in all, “Lolita” is filled with awe and exhilaration, along with heartbreak and mordant wit.”
