"Here is the story of a little boy from the tiny community of Lincoln Park, Pennsylvania, who grew up to become that most anomalous of things: a famous book jacket designer. Along the way he worked very hard, met a lot of interesting people, and eventually came to understand that being a famous book jacket designer and exactly two dollars and fifty-eight cents would get him a dopio espresso macchiato at Starbucks. Period. But that was okay by him--as long as he had lots of engaging work, an acceptable roof over his head, and someone nice to wake up next to. And two dollars and fifty-eight cents. He did and he does, and the fruits of more than twenty years of labor are gathered herein. He very much wants you to take a look and see what you think, but will definitely understand if you don't have the time."--Jacket

"In an Ivy League town, Bloom turns Yale's motto--Lux et Veritas--on its head, finding darkness and deceit in every corner of New Haven ... The stories Bloom chooses share a strong sense of place, detailing the quirks that make every corner of New Haven distinctive. But it's the lucid writing and clear, compelling storylines that make her dark tales shine. Maybe she offers a noir version of Light and Truth after all."
