About the illustration:
Mort Künstler's 1978 painting, The Tucson Stage, illustrated the cover of this novel in the Avon publisher's edition. The painting and this edition of the book are on view in Gallery 4 through June. Your copy of the book is likely to have a different cover than the Avon edition with Künstler's illustration. That's ok! We will compare imagery in our discussion.
