Atria’s concerns with the hardcover jacket design for Jennifer Weiner’s Then Came You:
- Skirt color
- Hair style
- Ugly desk
Things about which they are blithely unconcerned:
- The terrifying geometries of their stock photography, making it seem as if the floor of this office lies at a forty-five degree angle to the surface of the earth. Or is she in a plummeting aircraft? Maybe it’s the future, and she is actually in the interior of a spun up asteroid, and those are screens meant to ease claustrophobia. Which explains the Future Desk. And the blouse. Nobody wears green on X-371, lest they be targeted by the security wasps, obviously.
I have a copy of this book and now all I can see is the crazy city when I look at it.
