Katie Hi,

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this. If not, please redirect me.

I went to recommend Erasure to someone on in a goodreads group and found that the description of the book had (in my opinion) serious spoilers (i.e. sister being killed, book award nomination, the new name of his book). I think, at a minimum, the description is excessively comprehensive. Is there a way to change this?

Thanks for your help.

The publisher doesn't seem to think so, as that is part of the description they have provided.

Lobstergirl Okay, but in my experience book jacket descriptions from the publisher contain the most egregious spoilers. All the time.
