Summer Arrivals

June 25, 2022

It’s now officially summer and the novels and short fiction this week are all good choices for the season’s reading—whether at the beach, on the porch or sitting under a tree in a city park. They range from a propulsive crime novel to family sagas that will take you to Nigeria and the American West, as well as stories of displacement from Addis Ababa to Iowa and a revelatory broken world in the near future.

Happy reading,
Melanie Fleishman
