Possible cover for my novel

What do you think? My American publishers just sent me this as a possible cover for my novel In The Rooms (Thomas Dunne Books, January 2011). I think it's terrific, the optical illusion richly suggestive of the book's elegant trompe l'oeil plot — an ever-shifting cat's cradle of sex, intrigue and deception, in which lies entomb the liar in Escher-like regress and only love turns out to be true. The last time I looked, anyway.


  1. I like it, regardless of whether that glass is three-quarters empty or one-quarter full.

  2. It's great! I noticed it on the side here and wanted to mention how much I liked it. Much more striking than the previous cover. Congrats!
