Dead End in Norvelt conversation III

Before I post the conversation, I wanted to show the new Dead End cover for the UK audience:

Wow–that’s enticing, isn’t it? It conveys a totally different feel for the book. It looks foreboding and dangerous and menacing. I like it… but I also wonder if that is an accurate portrayal of its contents. It gives no hint at the humor and quirkiness of the characters

Compare that with the current cover:

This is the original, down-home, small town cover. 1962 rural Pennsylvania. More quaint and humorous–but no hint of the murder-mystery inside its covers.

I’ll leave you to analyze. In the meantime, you can be a fly on the wall of our conversation on the second third of the book.
