Day Ninety-Five: "The Lolita School" by Brock Clarke


An instructor of an all girls' school where students are being taught to become "lolitas" in the Nabokov fashion narrates this story, shares with the reader what it's like to create these little monsters. There is a line that somehow doesn't get crossed with the storytelling even in how clearly disturbing it is and is reminiscent of the way Nabokov achieves the same thing in his masterpiece.

Overall, I found this story interesting even if very little happened. I could see that this piece was about pushing limits and by story's end, I found myself wishing it had pushed them a little bit more.
