Yeah, "The Wire" in my bra-- which, by the way, I think I left somewhere in your bedsheets.

Burning a great work of literature is a terrible sin. There is a sense in which a writer's work, once created, is no longer his exclusive property, especially after the writer's death. Max Brod did a great service to humanity by not burning Kafka's works, and Nabakov's son should follow that path.

How can you say no to two great writers? By not burning the manuscript they're going against Stoppard as well as Nabakov!

If he wanted the book burned so bad why didn't he just do it himself? Why leave cryptic instructions to future generations? Maybe he knew it was a terrible thing to do to a brilliant work of literature and even Vladimir would of changed his mind if he lived long enough.
