RARA-AVIS: Lolita Humor

It's been 30 years since I read *Lolita* but I recall laughing out loud at a list of motels and signs that Humbert saw along the highways and byways of America. A very long paragraph filled with names of businesses like Starlight Manor, Roadside Roost, Burger Corral, and All-Night Naps.

Noir? Not quite. More well-written weird rather than anything else.
