The cover of Jennifer Haigh's new book Baker Towers doesn't tell you a thing about what's inside, and we think it's a shame that just because her last novel, the very successful Mrs. Kimble, was about women and marriage, that this one - a detailed, multigenerational historic novel about a Pennsylvania mining town - should have a cover of a forties-era chick reclining on the hood of a car.
