I sometimes wonder about the thought process that editors go through when they decide what to put on a cover. Somebody actually made a conscious decision to put this photo on this cover. Heck, they even went to the trouble of cutting out the background. Now I realize that this book came out in the 1950s, and I’m sure that this is what passed for cheesecake back then, but seriously, did they really think this would sell the book? An even worse thought is that maybe it did help sell this book. Is she supposed to be attractive? Is that supposed to be a sexy pose? Well, she isn’t and it isn’t.
