New Nabokov to be published

Lots of us have Nabokov on our lists, so i thought people would be interested in this excerpt from 'the booksellers' news article

"Penguin is to publish Vladimir Nabokov's unfinished final novel, The Original of Laura. Penguin Classics editor Alexis Kirschbaum bought the book, together with continuing rights to the Nabokov backlist, in a six-figure deal through Andrew Wylie. The Original of Laura will be published as a Penguin Classics hardback at £25 on 3rd November, and simultaneously by Knopf in the US."
