A Disorder Peculiar to the Country

A Disorder Peculiar to the Country

HarperCollins, New York, New York, 2006

Description

From the publisher’s keynote: “a stunning, darkly comic novel about the dissolution of a marriage during a time of fear and loathing in America.” This “time of fear and loathing” is the immediate aftermath of September 11. I wanted the cover to be very simple and intense. The type is meant to be “peculiar” and the illustration pretty self-explanatory.

Juror Notes

“No explanation necessary.”

“Sign of a truly effective design—matte/gloss spots and embossing are a plus.”
