A bouquet of book covers

March 24, 2017

About a year ago, I posted about the different covers for Bernard Malamud’s The Natural; they’re so pretty

Here’s something similar about the late Jimmy Breslin’s 1964 release, Can’t Anybody Here Play This Game?: The Improbable Saga of the New York Met’s First Year, beginning with the original hardcover edition. I can’t vouch for the chronological order of the rest.

Here’s The New York Times obituary for Breslin, and an interesting backstory about how they prepare some of obits.
