How does that follow?

Also, if I may, the gloss of production—design, detachable cards, heft, etc—seems to have subtended the product. Indeed, what is The Original of Laura? Only a product? And what has happened to the rest of the work, as a result? (The Vintage re-issues underscore this plaint.)

Am I now to read VN as artist or artificer? As a literary version of Warhol or Madonna. Or something else?

Despite his father's wish that the The Original of Laura be consigned to flames, DN's exultant email reporting the extraordinarily successful sales in Russia proves yet again that he was right in deciding The Lady's Not for Burning.
