I deleted that picture of the cover of On Looking because I can't stand to look at it for many reasons.  If you missed it and want to see it, go HERE.  I'll bitch about that class later on.

What was your first thought when you looked at this book cover?  To me it looks like some sort of bony melty alien pupa type creature.  Then upon closer inspection, I realized that it's a neck and spine and shoulders.  Or as I like to refer to it - a man with his head up his ass.  I hate it.  This is one of the books of essays we have for the seminar on writing creative nonfiction. All the essays she included in this have something to do with looking at different things in various ways.
