Title: A Dangerous Woman
Author: James T. Farrell
Cover artist: Uncredited
Yours for: SOLD (6/2/08)
Best things about this cover:
- This is more like a woman auditioning for a paperback cover than an actual cover painting. "You want me to [not] wear what?"
- "... her obsession for men became a desire to repel them" - Mission Accomplished.
- 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Five bangles on her right wrist. Yes, that's a record for a paperback cover. Congratulations, boring, overly-clothed lady. You can collect your $10 Target gift certificate on your way out the door. Buh-bye.
- "Dangerous" extends directly out from her crotch. Nice.
Best things about this back cover:
- This blurb writer is from the "Adverb adjective, adverb adjective, adverb adjective, and adverb adverb adjective..." school of blurb writing.
- Why don't writers cover "the human scene" any more?
- That Panther is far too sedate to be a good logo. It should really be killing something, or at least roaring.
I never knew what anarchism was except that I'm against it and it's radical, but I never knew what an anarchist was. Now I know. An anarchist is a Frenchman driving an automobile in gay Paree.
