Little Children's Illegitimate Children?
I'm a pop culture icon! Not really. But Entertainment Weekly Magazine mentioned how my cover design for Tom Perrotta's novel Little Children with it's green lawn background inspired copycat covers.
If it's true, I'm flattered. But the kid is not my son.
Although their mock cover for Leaves of Grass IS pretty brilliant.

You can read a bit about the controversy surrounding the HC edition of Little Children with its Goldfish cracker cover that I was forced to change. Which I thought was perfect for the story.
