Apex Hides the Hurt

Remember this?

You don't? Here's a brief description:

"The protagonist of Colson Whitehead's briskly existentialist third novel is a nomenclature consultant...The book's title comes from a bandage manufactured to color coordinate with pigments other than Caucasian."

While I think the new paperback (below) is fine on its own, held up to the hardcover it lacks a little something. Has anyone read this?

I read the book. It's not as humorous as the paperback cover might lead you to believe. I wasn't a big fan of the HC jacket either, but it relates much more to the book.
