The power of a well-designed book cover shouldn't be underestimated - just think about all the iconic covers that have become inextricably linked with the stories they contain: The Godfather, Catcher in the Rye, Jaws, Twilight. We discuss what makes some book covers so memorable, and share our favourites. And then in Footnotes, we close off with the uproar caused on social media by Joyce Carol Oates when she claimed white male writers aren't getting enough publishing opportunities.
