Picture Me Gone

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.
