Hi all!

In our show today, we welcomed many guests and featured some interesting reports. Our main guest was Kamal Karim Kassar, founder and President of the AMAR (Arabic music archiving and research) Foundation. We talked about the novel “Lolita” during our book segment, prepared with Chef Ramzi a delicious dish & much more!

During our book segment, Rachel Khalil Halik talked about the novel “Lolita” written by Vladimir Nabokov. Rachel Halik explained that “Lolita” is a novel of love, passion and tragedy. It represents a relationship of love and worship contaminated by incest drives. Humbert, a 50 year old man, falls in love with Dolores Haze, a 12 year old girl, also known as Lolita. She controls him and all he cares about is pleasing her. Not only does he have sexual desires towards her, but also becomes compelled to protect her. He destroys her world and she does the same. Interesting novel!!
