JBC Net­work author and Nation­al Jew­ish Book Award final­ist Boris Fish­man recent­ly announced the release of a paper­back edi­tion of his acclaimed debut nov­el, A Replace­ment Life. Harper­Collins decid­ed to go with dras­ti­cal­ly dif­fer­ent design for the new book cover:

If you find Boris’s writ­ing as intrigu­ing as we do, you should def­i­nite­ly hear him speak about his process in craft­ing and pub­lish­ing a book — and about his iden­ti­ty as a Jew­ish Russ­ian author. And we have the per­fect oppor­tu­ni­ty to do so: come here Boris in con­ver­sa­tion with Yele­na Akhtiorskaya, author of Pan­ic in a Suit­case, and Gal Beck­er­man, win­ner of the 2012 Samir Rohr Prize for When They Come for Us We’ll Be Gone: The Epic Strug­gle to Save Sovi­et Jew­ry, on the lit­er­ary Russ­ian Jew­ish Amer­i­can expe­ri­ence as part of Unpack­ing the Book, a new Jew­ish Book Coun­cil author dis­cus­sion series at the Jew­ish Muse­um, mod­er­at­ed by Wall Street Jour­nal asso­ciate books edi­tor Bari Weiss. Not to be missed!
