The Latina Book Club reserves Fridays for Book Covers.
Yes, we do judge books by their covers.
They are so much fun, and often give clues as to what the book is truly about.
Today we are looking at the book cover of Adriana Fuentes Diaz’
WHEN STRONG WOMEN SPEAK, STRONG WOMEN LISTEN.
The book cover looks like a marriage between expressionism and surrealism. There are distortions, exaggerations, elements of fantasy. It’s all very vivid, very jarring, but dynamic.
Our heroine is naked at the river. Nakedness could represent that she is every woman, that she is free from the chaos reflected in the colorful, imposing bits and pieces hovering above her. The pieces are suspended and hopefully, at her control.
What about the water? is she stirring it or calming it? Is she blessing the water or purifying it with blood?
The title mentions Strong Women twice. We speak. We listen. This gives the Reader impression of mentors, of inspiring women, daring women – bold, adventurous, fearless. Women we long to be.
How close where we?
