See, I even sort of have a couple of things to say about Skin Trade, but then I think to myself, I could not begin to guess what the title actually means. It has no bearing on anything I read, none at all.
And then I think, fuck it, how can anyone else possibly still care anymore? Even the good ones are so terrible.
 Also, the saw blades on the cover? Equally random and meaningless. Perhaps title and cover are a metaphor for what lies within. There’s a kind of sadistic irony in the fact that it would be impossible to comprehend such a literally superficial metaphor without having read the book.
