This book and cover are from 1966. According to the cover, it was written by the author of Twice with Julie. Was Julie a friend of Elaine’s? Maybe that man smoking the cigarette knows Julie too. What I like about this cover is the use of the mirror. At first, it appears that Elaine is looking at the reader, inviting them to read the book. It’s only when you look closely at the cover that you realize she’s sitting in front of a mirror and that, instead of standing behind her and watching her from a distance, the man is actually standing directly in front of her.
This cover was done by the amazingly prolific and talented Paul Rader.
