Instead, here's what I want to show you now: NEW translation of Le Brick (aka the original Les Misérables) coming out from Penguin Classics books! With a new cover. By awesome artist Jilian Tamaki.
Here's the link for the preorder, since you'll probably want one, as you can never have enough translations can you http://www.penguin.com/book/les-miserables-by-victor-hugo/9780143107569
What makes this so dang awesome as opposed to every other cover of every other translation? I mean you can't even see Javert anywhere on it (at least I can't) but...
Look at the spine.
LOOK AT IT.

Do you know what that is? Besides a barricade I mean.
It's hair. And teeth.
To quote from one of my favoritest adaptions of Les Mis ever, also known as The South Park Movie: "Holy shit, dude."
Okay, back to everything else. We'll talk later.
