I recently purchased of copy of Elizabeth Taylor’s A Game of Hide and Seek.  It was republished by the Little Brown Book Group, as part of their Modern Classics series.  This is why:

I couldn’t not have something that beautiful on my bookshelf.  Surprisingly, though, the book was truly wonderful.  I’d never heard of it, or the author, but it was a lovely story, and the way the writer occasionally intruded into the thoughts of characters was utterly captivating.  It was a truly compelling read.  Not a big story, but one that is both beautiful and well-told.

See: on occasion, judging a book by its cover turns out just fine.
