Here is the cover of my new story suit. It's titled "Amarcord" ("I Remember") after the famous Federico Fellini film. The cover art is Philip Wilson Steer's Young Woman on the Beach, Walberswick (1886/88).


The book should appear in my own first English language "Polaris" edition by the end of January 2007.

(As always, it is not meant for sale, but to provide interested foreign publishers with reading copies.)
