If the people at Vintage had READ the Maxwell, they'd realize that the cover is almost Tutis-worthy. It's about a young boy -- but in a town in Illinois in 1918.A kid in a small Midwestern town would not have survived that suit or that haircut...
The same image is also on the US edition of They Came Like Swallows. Which is a remarkable and powerful book, though I prefer his later So Long, See You Tomorrow.
Tulkinghorn: Good point--though to be truly Tutis-worthy, he'd be wearing a Clash T-shirt and have Maori face tattoos.Matt: I hadn't noticed that--it seems to be on a couple of foreign-language editions too. I haven't read 'So Long...' yet: that and 'The Chateux' are in the teetering piles of to-be-reads.
