Did you know Cher was posing for book jackets back in 1975?
This is Costain's novel about Attila the Hun. Three questions come to mind:
(1) Is the horse on steroids?
(2) How is she managing to stay on?
(3) What's up with the purple leather boots?
The jacket includes a positive blurb from Rosemary Sutcliff, so this may be a case of don't-judge-the-book... etc. But aside from the interesting title, who knew that disco was so popular in 1850s Sussex? (Mark thinks the hero resembles Derek Sanderson from the Boston Bruins.)
We should be thanking our lucky stars for the headless woman trend.
