A.J. Fikry Covers & LOVE

Guess what? I have a book out in April, and it has three English language covers, and I love them all differently.


This is America. When I look at this cover, I think she has seen deep into my very soul. No one understands me like this cover. We are soulmates. I’d marry her, if she’d have me. This cover is by the talented Anne Winslow.

This is UK. I love her like I love really good pens and adorable, overpriced stationery, and coffee table books. I want to go shopping with her. I want her to be my very best friend.  We text all the time. We have private jokes. The paper sculpture in the cover was commissioned by Little, Brown UK, and it is by Su Blackwell, whose work I adore!

This is Canada. I love her like a movie that I’m dying to see despite the fact that I know I’m going to cry at this movie. It’s just my contact lenses. It’s allergies. I’ll be fine. Just please stop looking at me, and pass the Kleenex.

  1. I just finished an ARC of The Storied Life Of AJ Fikry. Amazing, thank you. I wish you would stop in central California on your tour.

  2. Gabrielle, I am intriqued. Why has the title of your book been changed for UK readers? I love the American title which seems to suggest all kinds of possibilities, whereas the British title seems drier…I am currently listening to A J Fikry on Radio 4 in the UK and loving it!
