Revealed: UK cover

Reading The World

I am delighted to share the cover of Reading the World: Confessions of a Literary Explorer, which will be published in the UK by Harvill Secker/Random House on 5 February, 2015.

The clever designers behind it (who have also created jackets for books by the likes of Haruki Murakami, Ian McEwan and Graham Greene – eek!) have worked hard to weave in lots of elements from the original project. Look closely and you’ll see some of the titles from the list featured on the map, along with a number of objects from different regions.

I love the warm and personal feel of it. And I’m also fascinated by how different it is from the US cover, which I’ll share with you around this time tomorrow.

Watch this space…

  1. I’m just some random guy who came across your blog, and I want to thank you. It inspired me. Now, as I’m traveling the world, I’m trying to read a book by a local author for each country I visit, and I often look at your list for recommendations. So, thank you, and I’m interested to check out your book as well! -Brad

    • Thanks Brad. That’s so lovely to hear. How exciting to be travelling the world. Do let me know about any exciting literary discoveries you make – maybe I can add them to the list!
