Coveralls: A Gate at the Stairs

2011 November 29

The book:

I’m reading Lorrie Moore’s A Gate at the Stairs now and though I loved the opening chapter, I’m now tired of it and I’m not really sure I care where the characters are headed. But, I’ll save the reviewing to the professionals and just move on to the cover–at least the cover for the edition I have. I like the green, the symmetry, the suburban quiet it evokes, and so I chose a look that reflects some of that, below.

The look:

A Gate at the Stairs

I really want that sweater. Also the coat. And yes, the shoes.
