The Original of Laura : (Dying Is Fun) A Novel in Fragments, Paperback / softback Book

The Original of Laura : (Dying Is Fun) A Novel in Fragments Paperback / softback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series

Description

The Original of Laura is Vladimir Nabokov's final, incredible unfinished novel in fragments.

Dr Philip Wild, a man of brilliance, wit, fortune and tremendous bulk, is used to suffering humiliations at the hands of his wife, the younger, slender, and rudely promiscuous Flora.

But in a novel, a 'maddening masterpiece' documenting her infidelities, written by one of her lovers and given to the doctor, she appears as My Laura.

Dishonoured, Wild still finds pleasure in life, by indulging in self-annihilation, beginning with the removal of his toes.
