Cover Up

We’re looking forward to discussing The Submission by Amy Waldman in both our morning (August) and evening (September) 2nd Tuesday Book Groups.   It is a fictional examination of what might happen if  a Muslim architect won a contest to design a Ground Zero Memorial.

With the subject matter in mind,  I am fascinated by the various covers the book has been given by different publishers/editions.

One Response to Cover Up

  1. Going by cover alone, the best shows the man looking out the window at the NY city scape. It’s colorful and bright and attracts the eye. The covers may make sense if you have read the book, but I haven’t, sorry.
