For lit geeks, the greatest scandal of our time continues. Dmitiri Nabokov has still not decided what to do with Laura, his father's final novel which he asked be destroyed. D. Nab is an unenviable position. On one hand, Lolita was so awesome that this book probably has some literary merit. On the other hand, taking away a dead man's final wishes is completely fucked. Isn't death enough of a punishment? But now, Dmitri speaks!
In an all-capped email to Ron Rosenbaum, who wrote original piece for Slate, Dmitri announced that he was breaking his silence in order to announce further silence: he will make his decision privately and has no timetable. He also said that he won't reveal his choice to anyone. That plan is a bit fraught: If Laura is on display Barnes & Noble, it'll be pretty clear how he decided.
But let's get back to the all-capped email. Did he not read Send: The Essential Guide to Email for Office and Home? THAT'S NO WAY TO CONTINUE A LITERARY LEGACY!!!!!!
