It must have been very difficult for Dmitri to decide to publish his father's last work, and it goes against the wishes of VN himself. However, I am grateful to have this example of his writing method.
The book is beautiful, too. The dust jacket on the hardcover version features text that fades from left to right. The cover under the dust jacket is of graph paper with handwritten notes. And the index cards are featured with scans of front and back, as well as transcriptions of what is on each card.
So, tell me: are you purchasing, or do you plan to check out from a library at some point in the future, "The Original of Laura"? Are you abstaining from reading it due to moral objections? Are you curious?
