With sum­mer now in full swing, it’s time to start your sum­mer read­ing! Choose a hot-off-the-press June release or one of the forth­com­ing July or August books, head to a beach or pull up a deck chair and lose your­self in one of these great new titles. Look out for fol­low up books from Julia Dahl and Judy Brown, two new mem­oirs (with recipes!) that explore the pow­er of cook­ing, and new books from Etgar Keret, Joshua Cohen, Pam Jenoff, Talia Carn­er, and Alice Hoff­man among many oth­ers. Explore the land of the mid­night sun, revis­it the ear­ly 20th cen­tu­ry and meet the stars of the Mod­ernist era in Eng­land or the char­ac­ters roam­ing New York City’s Bow­ery in the Jazz Age. Whichev­er books you choose, hap­py reading!
