Irma Voth, and that is so not my colour

Bizarrely, during the summer of 2008, I realized that I had dresses that perfectly matched the covers of two Miriam Toews’ novels: here is my Flying Troutmans dress, and here I am suited up for Summer of My Amazing Luck. So I’ve been curious about the look of Toews’ upcoming novel Irma Voth, and just how it would fit into my wardrobe (which now is mostly jeans and black t-shirts, plus the two other dresses, as I’ve been too fat to wear them the last two years. I think they fit again, but I also think I need to go shopping).

And though I like the cover, the fact is that it really won’t look good on me– blue is so not my colour. I have a feeling that my string of Miriam Toews dresses may have finally come to an end.

    Maybe they’ll fix it with the paperback edition?

      I hope so. I am much more winter-toned.

    Ha – I was thinking the same thing! Hold out for the pb edition. In fact, get some new summer dresses, take some photos & mail them to the appropriate Art Director…

    Her books do usually have a running theme of fun color on the spine of the book, so I was surprised with the cover of her newest and upcoming book! It’s too bad that it won’t match anything you own though 🙁 I can’t wait to read this book, she’s one of my favorite authors!!!
