In Japan, Just Say “No”

Finally here is the cover for the Japanese translation of “SuperSense.” It does seem like a big REJECT but apparently the Japanese publishers have been quite cunning. Above the X is the question”Could you wear a killer’s cardigan?” which by now, as you know, is one of my opening gambits to the notion of essentialism that I develop in the book. The X stands for a “No” but as it happens is also a sacred symbol in Japanese that is often incorporated into knot tying. I kind of like it. It almost compels you knot to buy it.

Below is a recap of some of the best kitty covers adopted by different countries.

Ok, as promised, that will be the end of the blatant self-promotion…..

BTWDid I tell you that I am working on my next book about the self?????
