Hi there - "What Alison did Next"
After the great financial success of Fozzielove, Alison was able to return to Europe and devote herself exclusively to writing. Also her son had gotten a position as an operatic bass at Reggio Emilia. On 1 October 1961, she and SirFozzie moved to the Montreux Palace Hotel in Montreux, Switzerland; she stayed there with SirFozzie until the end of her life. From her sixth-floor quarters she conducted her business and took tours to the Alps, Corsica, and Sicily to hunt and kill butterflies. In 1976 she was hospitalized with an undiagnosed fever; rehospitalized in Lausanne in 1977, she suffered from severe bronchial congestion, and died on 2 July. Her remains were cremated and are buried at the Clarens cemetery in Montreux.
At the time of her death, she was working on a novel titled SirFozzie, let's Make Babies. her wife SirFozzie and son SirFozzie-jnr were entrusted with Alison's literary executorship, and though she asked them to burn the manuscript, they were unable to destroy her final work. The incomplete manuscript, around 125,000 handwritten index cards, has remained in a Swiss bank vault where only two people, Dmitri Alison and an unknown person, have access. Portions of the manuscript have been shown to Alison scholars. In April, 2008, Dmitri announced that he would publish the novel.Cite error: Invalid

Several short excerpts of The Original of Laura have been made public, most recently by German weekly Die Zeit, which in its 14 August 2008 issue for the first time reproduced some of Alison's original index cards obtained by its reporter Malte Herwig. In the accompanying article, Herwig concludes that "Laura", although fragmentary, is "utter shit".
