First there was the Amazon page, now there’s an actual cover.
OK, an early cover, but still.
My fantastic Penguin cover designer, Katie Finch, picked up on the fact that a great number of its chapters take place in American motels, and gave me a very beautiful neon sign.
It’s way too early to talk about what the book is about, but I will say that it’s a heartrending future classic, soon to be a major motion picture, not to mention a thoughtful, insanely sophisticated exploration of the relationship between adults and children. It contains a gigantic easter egg, lots of French toast and a weed whacker. No one dies in the end. No animals were harmed in the writing. None of the children has cancer. And yes, there is a dog. But no Eck.
I think that’s more than enough for the moment.
