Nabokov's Unpublished Work

Nabokov's son decided not to honor his father's wishes and burn the manuscript! Good for us.

Slate article.

It's out November 17. A couple of sites say it will be available as an ebook, but none allow you to pre-order anything but a hardback. I guess I'll wait before I start pestering the publisher.

This is one I'll get as a hardback. I read that they are publishing it as detachable index cards like the ones Nabokov wrote on. You can remove them and flip through the book on the cards.

wow. this is amazing, brilliant news. Nabokov is one of my all-time favourite authors and even incomplete, the chance to read a new book by him is truly inexpressibly unhoped for. thanks so much for the link.

and i might even get the hardback as well, even though i'll want the ebook version too.
