10 Must-Read Books for July


Arts & Entertainments, Christopher Beha (July 1st)

With Arts & Entertainments, Beha moves in a little bit of a different direction from his superb debut What Happened to Sophie Wilder. For this second novel, he takes a more humorous and satirical route, looking at our cultural obsession with fame and money, and asking what we’d actually do to attain those things. Fans of Sam Lipsyte’s The Ask (you know, one of those books guaranteed to make you laugh) should really consider this as their next purchase.
