What to do with “The Original of Laura”?

Here’s something quite interesting. Some first hand info on what Nabokov’s son is thinking about doing with his fathers final manuscript, something Vlad asked to be destroyed.

Dmitri’s past pronouncements suggest that Laura is not merely another scrap of paper. At one point he called it “the most concentrated distillation of [my father’s] creativity.”

Huh.
