Interview: Jacqueline Baker, The Broken Hours

booksinthekitchen:

Writing an entire first draft in three months would be impressive even for a rambling, thinly veiled autobiography set in the present day. But Baker’s novel is a period piece set in Providence, R.I., circa 1936. It’s also got a tightly wound plot that doesn’t reveal its hand until the…

19th Century Author Biographies book cover series by Hilary Gaby

Charles Dickens, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, & Mark Twain
 
The concept for this biographical book cover series was centered around the author’s place of origin, and features elements that directly reference those places. A papercraft technique was used to create a three dimensional landscape scene which would enforce the idea of the author’s setting and help achieve a sense of cohesiveness through out the series.
I chose to incorporate fences and other small icons to depict the author’s life and to help illustrate what kind of environment these literary legends were exposed to and how that had direct influence on  some of the most famous stories in history.

Today’s post is dedicated to Carson McCullers’s brilliant first novel, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, which was published to great acclaim almost 75 years ago when the author was just 23. This novel is for anyone who has ever felt like an outsider or reject. I recently re-read the 1940 classic, and have collected various editions and incarnations of the book, most of my adult life. Here’s a sampling.  

Beautiful covers for this beautiful book. Also among this reporter’s favorite book titles of all time.
