- Jonathan Franzen on the cover of Time magazine, and 15 other authors who have graced the cover, too.

Some not completely suitable for work, but all quite funny, such as Lauren Weisberger's "The Devil Wears Prada" book cover magically transformed to "Shallow People Doing Shallow Things." (hat tip to The Rejectionist).
