New Look for the Aussie Peeling the Onion

Peeling the Onion is ten years old, and so last September it got a whole new look. What do you think???? (The original (first edition) cover is below.)


  1. shortyfromsaltspring I'm thrilled that Peeling the Onion ' is getting a new cover. I liked the old very much, I thought the drawing was beautiful, but if the book is getting another wave of recognition, I think it is just great, so any cover will do. I like the new look, a bit more modern perhaps, hip with the converse sneakers in there.
    I'm just so happy that things are going so well for the authour.

  2. Wendy Thanks so much! I loved the old one too...but it was getting exactly that: a bit old! And the sneakers are cool.

  3. Anonymous I think that it is really nice, but I liked the old one too!
    I also agree with the other comment, it is nice that the book cover is now more modern.
