Voila! My new dust-jacket

My publishers have just sent me the new dust-jacket for my novel, In The Rooms (Thomas Dunne, March 2011). I didn't know there was to be a new dust-jacket but the marketing department appear to have been busy conducting lengthy field tests in all 50 states and have determined this to be the winning ticket. As much as I loved the old one, and admired the Escher-like ingenuity of its entwined figures, it was a little dark and at a distance, with a little squinting, could be mistaken for Derrida translation. The new cover, on the other hand, has a pellucid sprightliness that I am sure will suggest to casual browsers the quality of the prose contained within.
