Lolita Amnesia

Stung by criticism that its “Lolita” beds for girls might be sending the wrong message, Woolworths stores have discontinued the scandalous model after parents’ group set up a fuss. (The model was still advertised on a supplier’s website—Lolita—when I checked.) As its excuse, a Woolworths rep claimed to be ignorant of Vladimir Nabokov’s famed novel and screen adaptations by Stanley Kubrick and others. Said the spokesperson, “There aren’t many people in the company, in the whole world, who know about the `Lolita’ book or films. There might be a few people in the country who have a problem with it, but it’s just a name.” And thus the need for better literature and film classes in our schools is made clear yet again.
