It’s been a while since I’ve seen the old vellum jacket over a printed cover trick. But this book is decked out as such. (See photo.)

This is a collection of stories by Jeffrey Eugenides, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author whose first novel, The Virgin Suicides, was made into a film by Sofia Coppola. Plus, it had a much better cover than this book. (See phpto.)

I never saw the movie, but I liked the book at the age I read it; I have a feeling if I read it, now, I would not be so impressed.

Okay, okay! I get it. You want to know about this book, the one I’m selling.

I can’t tell you anything. I didn’t read it.

P.S. – The illustrations on the cover of the book made me think of “Tom Goes to the Mayor,” a really weird cartoon that used to be on Adult Swim. (See a clip here.)
