David High: Less Than Zero

Trade paperback - saw this Christ Mas Eve in the Union Square Barnes & Schnoble's (which was absolutely MOBBED by the way - I guess people are STILL buying books!). The title, which is practically white-on-white toward the middle, is the only part of the cover that is embossed - and everything is matte. Makes me want to read the book. The city is a smoggy LA, where the story takes place in the 80s. I wonder if the white-on-white embossed title alludes to the mountains of cocaine the characters snort.

That yellowy smuck does the Los Angeles skyline justice.

I love white on white, and black on black.
