`Hurricane Lolita'

Thanks to Roger Boylan for alerting me to a series of photographs of Vladimir Nabokov shot in 1959 for Life magazine. Most have never been published, and some show an elegantly casual VN indulging the whims of a photographer in the wake of "Hurricane Lolita" (as he referred to his bestselling novel in Pale Fire).
