This fucking thing:



has been optioned for a TV series. And somehow I never noticed the author's photo when the book was posted here before, but fucking look at it. Have you ever seen a face that screams "bellend" more than that one?
his nose looks like a scrotum to be fair which is the other end

I do hate his wacky twitter lefty act which is usually just taking a viral video of some cunt falling over and puts "live footage of the UK leaving the EU"

There are books I haven't bought because the only affordable option was a Wordsworth Classic.

Barnes and Noble decided to sell versions of books (conveniently, all in the public domain) with POC on the cover, after having used an algorithm to determine which books mentioned the ethnicity of their protagonists the least. It appears it got all the way to nearly being sold before the chorus of people telling them what a fucking stupid idea it was won out. For instance, "The Secret Garden", with its exceptionally racist main character, has decided to reimagine this character as Asian on the cover, strongly indicating no-one involved in any of this had ever read the book, or knew anything about it.

I think I've mentioned Dedalus before in one of these threads. Well here's their cover for Robert Irwin's new book:



This isn't a self-published vanity press, Dedalus is a serious publisher of literary fiction with Arts Council funding.

How about a race-reverse version of Huckleberry Finn, a feisty well educated young black boy and his unlikely friendship with escaped white servant Cracka-Jim.
