Ginny sent news that the front cover of the first edition of my novel Foxy-T (Faber and Faber, 2003) is to be included in her book club quilt. Thank you Ginny, this made my month. I will find out more about this anon but I think that the idea of a ‘book club quilt’ is fairly self-explanatory. It is also completely brilliant; such a great idea.
Ginny’s book club has been going for a while now and they’ve read a lot of books, so I’m really honoured that Foxy-T is included. It’s also a particularly nice cover, which was designed by Jonathan Gray of gray318 – who at the time was being justly celebrated for the cover he did for Jonathan Safran Foer’s novel Everything is Illuminated.
Ginny sent this jpeg of the patch, which I love. It is currently unhemmed. I will ask Ginny to send another few images as the book club quilt nears completion (though I have no idea how many weeks, months or years away that might be).
