This hardcover novel has seen better times. It’s faded citrine body is lightly tinted in what looks like dirt. Embellished on the cover is a raised set of antlers, it’s bistre color faded or completely missing in some areas. Interestingly no author is listed in the front matter or within the publishing sections. Some of the text on particular pages is faint and hard to make out, yet still vaguely legible. A stained ring, probably from an ill-placed coffee cup, marks the lower half of it’s cover.
