Giffin Book Cover Look-a-Like?

11 Aug

I came across this book yesterday:

Look familiar?  If I hadn’t stopped long enough to read the author’s name, I would have assumed it was a new book by Emily Giffin.  Here’s what her books look like:



It looks like Gail Caldwell’s novel fits right in, doesn’t it?  I was even more surprised by this once I discovered that Caldwell has been the Chief Book Critic for The Boston Globe since 1985 and that she won a Pulitzer prize for Criticism in 2001.  Something tells me she would have noticed the resemblance too.   Ultimately, I don’t think it’s really that big of a deal, but still – very interesting…

    Wow, you are so right, Caldwell’s book looks like all the others. And yet it’s a memoir! I have a copy of it with a slightly different cover (it’s light blue instead of mustard yellow). I wonder if these books are published by the same publisher?

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting!
