Indeed. Therein lies the fascinating mystery of the title, which 
attracted my intention. And what Afrisi was up to in reading _Lolita_ 
with her students and now writing about that reading in her book is 
only very crudely approximated by trying to imagine _Lolita_ as  "a 
tool of women's liberation."
