[DATED 1959 - TOO LATE FOR THIS PHASE OF RED] "I wonder if you have got hold of a copy of Lolita yet? You said you were trying to. I think it is a revolting book, and am very angry at Nigel having got involved in it. His partners arranged to publish it, and he had never even read it - so of course knew nothing about it till this storm burst over them."
