My colleagues at UnBeige spotted an interesting and colorful sidebar to a recent Entertainment Weekly profile of Alice Sebold, explaining just how The Almost Moon acquired that shade of red: Apparently, it came from a suggestion by her husband, novelist Glen David Gold, after she turned down Little, Brown‘s original yellow cover concept as too similar to that on her memoir, Lucky. “When I saw it, I was like, ‘enh,’” she told EW. “But I like the red better. I just think of it as Blood Mountain.”
