Trouble with Stock Images

As I'm currently reading and very much enjoying Alice Mattison's story collection, Men Giving Money, Women Yelling, and having loved her novel The Book Borrower, I thought I'd see what else she has written. In doing so, I discovered another case of ubiquitous stock imagery.

It's a photo by Felix Man, used on both Mattison's In Case We're Seperated and on the nearly reputation-wrecking posthumous collection of Philip Larkin's "secret" prose.
