The cover for this 1979 Harlequin edition of Anne Hampson’s Beyond the Sweet Waters is an orgy of everything that was so wonderfully awful about the 1970s. To wit:
- Kite-sized collars!
- Head scarves!
- Huge sunglasses!
- Big gold earrings!
- Center parts!
- Rugged men who are not afraid to wear orange shirts with kite-sized collars!
- Polyester (yes, friends, you can tell just by the illustrations that every fabric in sight is 100% man-made)!
There’s no way the book lives up to this cover. Just not happening.
