Oh, yes, I'll be lining up bright 'n' early to purchase the long-awaited Condibook which "drops," as the kids say (annoyingly), next Tuesday. Actually, that's totally a lie, because it sounds so utterly boring and covers all the stories she's brought up over and over already for years. Snore. But anyway, it has a different cover than the one I showed you earlier this year, which is a relief, because that was really a bad design. They changed the photo for one with a slightly older Condibot, and made it duotone green rather than sepia, a tacit admission that Condi was not born in the 19th Century. Gone is the dumb "distressed" edge, but the pointless curlicue, which I earlier described as "graphic designer's dandruff," remains. All the type has been shuffled around, and her name, surprisingly, has been pushed to the bottom. It's still not a great cover, but it's a lot better.
My prediction: the reviews will be charitable but lukewarm, and it will sell shitloads of copies, about 20% of which will be read all the way through.
