Perhaps my problem is that I have trouble labeling a funny novel Noir. As I recall it, LOLITA is a very funny novel.

************** Although there were humorous parts in Lolita, I wouldn't call it a funny novel. Nevertheless, humor is an important element of many noir novels. Tobacco Road might be har-dee-har in more than one place, but below the humor is a wicked undercurrent of degradation and hopelessness.
