For those who have followed the Liar cover controversy, Bloomsbury has created a new cover, with this statement to PW:
“We regret that our original creative direction for Liar—which was intended to symbolically reflect the narrator’s complex psychological makeup—has been interpreted by some as a calculated decision to mask the character’s ethnicity.”
It’s a start. But we must not let this lull us into complacency. The issues brought to the surface by the Liar cover remain.
