Summer Reading at Open Letters Monthly

The Fourth of July falls square in midweek this year, which means people either get more time off than usual or less, depending on who’s doing the giving. Either way, it’s a good idea to have some good reading material lined up—whether you’re kicking back while you’re waiting for the grill to be ready or sitting in the office lunchroom with an iced coffee and a piece of cold quiche. On the off chance you don’t yet, my friends and colleagues at Open Letters Monthly have a double-header of summer reading suggestions in the new July issue, and there’s something for every taste. Part I can be found here, and the second, here, includes my ode to Joan Didion’s Slouching Towards Bethlehem and a particularly sweet unsupervised teenage summer.
