Judge a Book by its Cover

Head over to Bookninja to vote for your favorite 'reimagined' cover. Is it The Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole with a cover image of Sarah Palin, Vineland by Thomas Pynchon with a cover straight out of Napa Valley, or one of the other surreal choices?

It's wonderful to see how creative some people are. At first I thought it would be hard to top A Confederancy of Dunces with Sarah Palin on the cover, but then I saw the reimagined cover of Leonard Cohen's Beautiful Losers, a book which I read many years ago at university as part of a seminar on the American West (yes, really) and which I vaguely remember as some sort of weird (drug induced?) very 1960s "trip" which I did not "get" at all. This new cover is a hoot!
Have you ever read the book or anything else by Leonard Cohen? I used to like his songs, but have not heard them for ages.
