Vladmir Nabokov's last work


(with thanks to Gary Kevin Ware)

The great writer Vladimir Nabokov ("Luzhin's defence") who has died in 1977 wanted his last work, "The Original of Laura", be burnt to ashes. After three decades his son decided to publish the unfinished manuscript.

As Gary Kevin Ware pointed out to me last week, Nabokov's final work is about to be published on November 17. Once more the great Russian writer strikes.

There's one good point his son made: If Vladimir would have wanted his work destroyed, he would have done so himself.

However, the reviews I read (Gary sent more I didn't read yet) don't really recommend the book. It's just... the main part is missing... very unfinished.

Cya,
Siegfried
