“Ninive” scuttles into Spanish with new translation and funky, quirky cover

“Entren, entren, infesten, invadan denme, una razon para estar aqui!”

I’m thrilled to reveal the cover for the new Spanish-language edition of my novel Niniveh (Ninive). Publisher Almadia have done a spectacular job, producing something unsettling, sweet and creep-crawlingly appealing. It shares a family resemblance with the South African cover but is also entirely its own thing. What’s fun about it is the surprise: the mauve dustjacket has a section cut out of it, so the green cover peeks through … and when you lift the top cover, the beetle transforms into butterfly/hair. I’m very proud to be launching this in Mexico at the Oaxaca International Book Fair in October.
