Well, I guess my memoir, Some Girls, is done because I’m holding a galley copy in my hand. It’s a strange feeling to see it looking like an actual book, after all this time during which it’s been my little secret world.
There was a bit of back and forth about the cover. The first girl they chose was too thin and looked like she was wearing a shetal (yiddish for the wigs Orthodox women wear). Nothing upsets this Leo like bad hair. I think this girl looks strong and that her gaze is captivating. I’m really happy with the final product. The design folks at Plume did a beautiful job.
The real thing comes out April 27.
