German Jennifer

Jennifer Government Sneaking in just ahead of the UK, the German edition of Jennifer Government comes out today. It’s called Logoland, because “Jennifer Regierung” doesn’t sound nearly so cool. Or so I’m told. Frankly, I’ve never understood this translation business. How do my characters know how to speak German? I don’t know.

The German publisher has gone with a different cover: to the best of my knowledge, they’re the only ones in the world do that. Genius? Insanity? You decide.
