Dear  Piers  Smith,
Apart from obviouse artistic value of TOOL, personally, I love the correlation between the content and the title, as do others. I'm not sure how familiar you may be with Nabokov's writings, but every book of his is a big surprise.
Best wishes,
Vladimir Mylnikov

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?

Great! There are some intelligent people in Russia. but again, thank you, Dimitry Vladimirovich, to expose that.
Best to all, Vladimir Mylnikov
