Celebrity status has unexpected consequences for everyone who lives in its shadow, as the family, friends and hangers-on of a famous writer discover. Lolita's father is a writer whose fame has made him so self-centered he has no clue the effect his egotistical behavior has on everyone around him. Now that she has grown up, Lolita becomes even more determined to make him notice her-- especially since she's discovered a talent of her own and would like his approval. There are people she thinks will help her, but she always winds up competing against them for her father's attention. And when she meets a guy who likes her for herself, Lolita finds she may actually be more like her father than she would ever have imagined

"This is the story of Lolita Cassard, a 20-year-old girl who is angry at the whole world because she doesn't look like the girls in the magazines and who would love so much to be beautiful, at least in the eyes of her father. It's also the story of a man, Étienne Cassard, who doesn't look at other people very much because he spends so much time looking at himself. It's the story of a writer, Pierre Miller, who doesn't believe he'll ever become successful until the moment when he meets Étienne Cassard. It's the story of a singing teacher, Sylvia Miller, who believes in her husband and his talent, but who doubts her own and that of her pupil Lolita, until the moment when she realises she's the daughter of Étienne Cassard, that author she so admires. It's the story of human beings who know perfectly what they would do in someone else's place but don't do very well in their own"--Case-slip

A reflection both on the corrupting power of fame and the disappointments of family life. Etienne is a famous novelist who is unconcerned by the unhappiness of his daughter Lolita, an overweight, sulky and insecure but gifted aspiring soprano. Lolita would love her father to look at her but unfortunately he is blinded by visions of himself. Lolita's apparent docility conceals a deep undercurrent of loathing, both for herself and for a world which she feels judges her solely on her appearance and, to add insult to injury, it seems that every person she meets wants to know her solely as a means of getting to her famous father
