VEVEY, Switzerland (AP) - Dmitri Nabokov, the translator, editor and only child of acclaimed novelist Vladimir Nabokov, has died. He was 77.

Literary agent Andrew Wylie says the younger Nabokov died Wednesday at a hospital in Vevey after a long illness.

Dmitri Nabokov was a Harvard-educated mountain-climber, opera singer, racing-car driver and playboy, in addition to protecting his father's legacy.

After the success of "Lolita," Dmitri Nabokov translated his father's "Invitation to a Beheading" from Russia" and after his father's death, he wrote the memoir "On Revisiting Father's Room."

In 2009, he decided to publish his father's final, fragmentary novel "The Original of Laura," which was written on index cards in 1975-77, the last years of his life. It was an act he said that went against his father's wishes.
