That version of the book, I'd read.

This one looks even livelier!

Lurid Alpha. Query: Does this period cover appeal to men or women.

Maybe we could find a way to induct Althouse into the Sadistic Snake Cult of the Congo.

The Baskerville hound looks like an angry chihuahua.

From the way you go at her, you make her sound like the High Priestess.

(oh, Chi-i-i-ip...)

That's the cover Jay Gatch would have imagined.

Why does that look ominously like a redheaded Robert Redford on the cover?

Fun link, Althouse.

Portal-worthy.

Has no one noticed that they all have cigarettes in their mouths on the cover. Except for the Marylin Monroe cover where she is smoking a pipe. lol

Pulp! it says.

Reminds me of Nelson Muntz coming out of Naked Lunch and exclaiming, "I can think of two things wrong with that title!"

Cujo's cousin?

BTW, Daisy was the literary embodiment of the author's colorful wife Zelda, who was also the inspiration for the Eagles' first hit Witchy Woman.

I didn't see the movie, but there's an Alan Ladd version of The Great Gatsby. It was made after the war, during Ladd's Blue Dahlia noir phase. Gatsby must have been reissued in paperback at that time. I bet the cover looked something like the Pulp one, but maybe a little more lurid. Flappers, sadly, did not have heaving bosoms, but they could flash some thigh.
