My New Spine!
My new spine! (My almost-in-bookstores novel Yiddish for Pirates without its jacket.) I love the embossing on hardcovers and always look under the dustjackets to see what the book looks like when “naked.” I was very thrilled to discover this. And as the book is narrated by a parrot, there is even a parrot on the spine (just above the title.)
Also pictured is the what the book was wearing before I “undressed it,” replete with an image of my rather rosy mug and the lovely back cover blurbs courtesy of Gary Shteyngart, Emily Schultz, Lauren B. Davis, and Terry Fallis.
