The black portion of the cover is actually the jacket - a bellyband. The yellow portion is printed directly on the case. This is a memoir by a star college baseball player nicknamed Happy who suddenly gets a stroke and two subsequent brain bleeds. As he endures depression, self-destructive behavior, and the wreckage of his own body, he is nursed back to health by his free-spirited artist mother. I don't know anything else about the book, but I love the pink brain bleed/painterly quality of the bellyband art.
