Title: The Mesh
Author: Lucie Marchal
Cover artist: photo
Yours for: Not for sale (one of three 'new' books I got from Doug Peterson this past weekend)
Best things about this cover:
- "Strange," "hidden," "forbidden" ... there's a reason it won the "LES Lettres Françaises" prize!
- Love the title font. Ambivalent about the colors. Also, why aren't these telegenic French lesbians wearing mesh? I was promised the mesh, I want to see the mesh.
Best things about this back cover:
- "Inbred!?"—jeez, nice metaphor.
- There's nothing lesbians like more than a good "psychological probing." Oh, and "Balzac."
As long as I live I shall never forget the sight I beheld when I opened the bathroom door, a sight which even today I do not know whether to call obscene or pathetic, but which I know was the start of the subsequent profound change in my whole outlook and my life.
The "sight" involves a topless woman washing a dog. Dum dum DUM!
