Nabokov's Last Novel to be Published

Vladimir Nabokov's son will not destroy his father's last, unpublished novel (The Original of Laura), The Guardian reports today. Dmitri Nabokov told the German magazine Der Spiegel that he decided to publish the book after his father appeared to him in a vision: "I'm a loyal son and thought long and seriously about it, then my father appeared before me and said, with an ironic grin, 'You're stuck in a right old mess - just go ahead and publish!'"

Publishing details to be announced.
