Best things about this cover:
- That tagline does not match this picture, but I guess "He Waited Patiently For The Mailman" isn't quite as exciting.
- I suppose there are sluttier poses than that one, but ... not many, I'd guess.
- I'm gonna downgrade that pose rating from "slutty" to "slatternly," with a dose of "wasted"
- The question isn't really "why that pose?" but "why that pose *there*, with her elbows on the sink basin??" "You like this, huh baby? Dirty dishes, dirty girl, right, baby? ... Baby? ... oh for chrissake it's Sunday, the mailman's not coming!"
Best things about this back cover:
- "I can hear your liver!"
- "And I love origami!"
He closed his eyes, opened them again. Stall after stall, with beans, and trucks behind them, unloading: box after box—of beans. There must be as many beans in East Row here alone as Jimmy had bought in the rest of the market!
I submit that this book should be retitled "He Dreams Of Beans." That would explain her expression of contempt on the front cover.
