Front Cover Fridays #2

Last week’s FCF was a little absurd. So let’s right the ship a little bit and as not-random as possible! Here’s a look at the first edition of this month’s book, The Winter of Our Discontent, by John Steinbeck, released in 1961 by Viking Press:

About APC

Following his days in the Octagon, APC worked for an undisclosed amount of time tracking and studying a colony of Yetis in eastern Nepal (read more about his travels in his memoir, "Backgammon 101: Let the Yeti Win"). Nowadays, he spends his time in Havana fitting model ships inside glass bottles, and counting his gold bullions with his chimpanzee, Don Ultimo.
