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!
Sydney and Violet: A Modernist Power Couple and Their Life with Eliot, Proust, Joyce, Huxley, Mansfield, Picasso and the Excruciatingly Irascible Wyndham Lewis
