One thought on “SOL Tuesdays: Blurb Art

  1. This post made me laugh. “Luminous” is the one that always gets me. How many contemporary novels are described as “luminous”? For me, it’s the kiss of death–if that word is on the cover, I have to put the book back down. Anything in a book that gets an “achingly” always makes me tired. There’s clearly an art to the book blurb–but mostly it seems to be about writing some florid prose that actually says nothing! I love how you take the kind of empty words from these blurbs and make something better out of them. That “like way-smart” at the end is hilarious.
