Divining the best cover

The Diviners — not the CanLit classic about Morag and her coming of age, but the upcoming novel by Rick Moody — is already getting a cover makeover. The cover that was used on advance galleys of the book, showing a victorious Conan the Barbarian-type, is being reworked. The original image is being downplayed, and is now depicted as being shown in a crowded movie theatre. As reported in The New York Times, publisher Little, Brown realized at BookExpo America in June that there were problems with its original choice. “I realized we were making a mistake,” Little, Brown’s Michael Pietsch tells the Times. “I saw a lot of people, particularly women, just turn away from the cover.”
