A set of short stories with the creative title “Collected Fiction,” the cover art of this book to be released in India is rather striking. The pigeons liter the ground and shadows are cast. The back is frosted.

The question is, which one of the three of them is dressed to kill. The girl who was “poured” into her little gold dress, the tough guy in blue, or the thug in brown? Guess you’d have to read the book.

The tagline for this book is “A woman obsessed.” And the woman on the cover doesn’t quite look it. But, I have no doubt she could burn a building down.

Heh, he’s obviously just not too into her. Gotta love that classic 60s art.

Sadly, what most people now know Proust as is “What the guy from the Office studied in the movie with the girl and the yellow Volkswagen bus.”

Noir, in Mexico, and there will be a hot Mexican woman. Book covers used to be so much easier to read.
