Barbara de Wilde: In Other Rooms, Other Wonders

Norton, Feb 2009. I'm curious to see this cover in person. It looks like the type is gold foil, and the silhouette is die cut, with an illustration on the case. The book is a collection of interconnected stories about Pakistan's dissolving social-class system. It's based on the author's experience of returning to Pakistan to wrest control of his family farm from local thieves (GQ).
