The Terrible Privacy of Maxwell Sim, by Jonathan Coe

There’s a new Jonathan Coe novel coming out, to be published by Viking (Penguin UK) on 27 May 2010. Here’s their somewhat curious cover design. I can’t decide if I love it or hate it…

No word yet on if/when Random House will get around publishing it in North America, but on past form I would guess they’ll bring it out a year late, with an ugly cover, and maybe even with the title changed to something deemed easier for Americans to understand. Thanks to The Book Depository, however, we need no longer concern ourselves with such aberrations.

  1. I love books covers too,enchantée to find your blog i discovered just now. As for this one,I love it but might be better used as a poster than cover book. Anyway,feel like reading this novel. Would it be a banal cover,maybe not as i don’t know this writer.
