Title: Lord Johnnie
Author: Leslie Turner White
Cover artist: Barye Phillips
Yours for: SOLD!! (1-11-11)
Best things about this cover:
- This is a book about a middle-aged woman fed up with her adult son who won't move out of the house and get a job already: "Lord, Johnnie, I am sick and tired finding your hoop earrings all over my damn house."
- Did I say "adult son?" I meant "flamboyantly gay adult son ... who is really into community theater."
- "Live pink or die, bitches!"
Best things about this back cover:
- Look, all the sword-into-noose imagery in the world is not going to make me believe that guy on the front cover likes to fuck women.
Not over fourteen, he had the look of a crazed ewe, and every sound in the prison set his thin body to quaking.
Every once in a while, Page 123 pays off very, very big. Is he quaking in fear or sexual excitement. I guess I just have to imagine how a crazed ewe would react if she were in prison ... yes, that works.
