In Vladimir Nabokov's 1955 novel Lolita, a middle-aged professor becomes sexually obsessed with a 12-year-old girl who reminds him of a childhood sweetheart who had died of cancer. He marries the girl's mother and begins an affair with his new stepdaughter. The novel was first published in France after six American publishers rejected it. I can't imagine any American publisher putting out such a book in 2019. Fifteen-year-old Sue Lyon starred in the 1962 movie adaptation and later appeared in The Night Of The Iguana, The Flim-Flam Man, 7 Women, Tony Rome and Four Rode Out.
