I couldn’t think of a more appropriate subject for today’s Daily Bookshot than the book I’m just about to start reading, Earth and Ashes by Atiq Rahimi (Other Press).
The cover – the creation of Kathleen DiGrado – is absolutely exquisite and it magnificently amplifies to the person standing before it, that this truly is a literary creation of Persian origin.
And because I only just posted my forethoughts for Earth and Ashes a little earlier, that’s all I’m going to say about today’s Daily Bookshot. I think it speaks for itself anyway (well an image of the full cover certainly does anyway ).
