10 Must-Read Books for July 2016

It turns out you can read anything you want on the beach.


Here Comes the Sun, Nicole Dennis-Benn (Liveright,  July 5)

It’s a little bit unfortunate that Dennis-Benn’s debut has been pitched alongside the beach read set, for it’s actually a finely written (and very much enjoyable) novel on a number of themes of social importance, one that deals with cultural tourism in Jamaica, gentrification, and questions of sexual freedom.
