Two new hardcovers from Doubleday. Once A Spy is a satirical thriller in which a young man realizes that his 67-year-old father, a laundry machine salesman, is actually a spy wanted by the CIA, setting off a cross-country chase. Matte with spot gloss, possibly holographic bubbles. A Week In December, by the same novelist of our last posting, Devil May Care, is set in London, where seven unrelated characters careen into each other's lives. One of them is a Tube driver, perhaps explaining the map. Printed on matte, the dots are spot gloss. I love the 3-D effect on the cityscape.

Hardcover by Rodrigo Corral for Doubleday. Trade paperback for Vintage (designer?) Mass Market also for Vintage. This is almost like watching a short movie. There is a little cropping going on so you may have to click on the image to see it whole. Just testing some new Blogger features.
