Description

In Thomas Hardy's A Pair of Blue Eyes (1873), a man is hired to restore an old church tower and falls for a woman with a disapproving father. What's worse, she also falls for the man's best friend, and the ensuing love triangle inevitably leads to her death. Enter the literary cover! Like its musical counterpart, Eaton begins with Hardy's basics and transforms it into something entirely his own. But in Eaton's version, the man begins to believe he can erect a new tower made entirely of words. And the woman's father — a personified version of the tragedy that hangs over all Hardy novels — develops a taste for destruction and decides to stick it to everyone.
