We are so delighted to bring you today’s post: a cover reveal for Sashi Kaufman’s new novel Wired Man and Other Freaks of Nature! Contemporary fans will need to have this one on their wishlist, especially after seeing its gorgeous cover.
In Wired Man and Other Freaks of Nature, Ben Wireman is partially deaf and completely insecure. The only two things that make him feel normal are being a soccer goalie and hanging out with his best friend, golden boy Tyler Nuson. When dark secrets of Tyler’s past apear, cracking their friendhip, Ilona Pierce struts in. She’s the kind of girl Ben has always tried to avoid, but with Tyler gone, he’s not sure he even knows who he is anymore.
“This cover was one and done! The amazing designer, Laura Rinne, really captured it on the first try,” said Kaufman. “The main character does a lot of hiding in plain sight, trying to never stand out from the crowd, so this picture of the boy with the hat pulled down over his face was perfect. But I think my favorite part is the diagram of the ear sketched in the background. My main character is hearing impaired which is a part of his story but not the main point of my story so I really liked the way this element is woven into the design of the cover.”
