John Wheatcroft's PORTRAIT OF A LOVER

In preparation for the publication of John Wheatcroft's new book, Portrait of a Lover, we have been looking at photographs for the cover. The book begins and ends with a park bench, a bench that is of immense importance to the plot of the story. It could not be just any bench, but one of a certain character, old fashioned and peculiar to parks in Pennsylvania during a certain period of time. We were very lucky to find a photograph by Michael Abbott that is just right.
