Apropos of pretty much nothing, I wanted to share the image to the left – the cover to the original paperback edition of Divorcing Jack by Colin Bateman.

I’ll freely admit that I’ve never read the novel (nor seen the film version that came out, though people I know said it wasn’t a patch on the book), but I’ve always felt that it had one of the best, and most intriguing, covers I’ve ever seen.

Why is the nun so glammed-up? Why is she carrying a dog in one hand, and pointing a gun at the viewer with the other (her left hand, no less)? I genuinely think it’s a terrific image, I have to say, and it’s a shame that the more recent edition doesn’t catch the eye in the same way.
