Get ready for summer III: up-rated fiction

beach_readsReader’s wanting to keep up with books that critics are talking about will want to try The Language of Solitude by Jan Philipp Sendker. This is a “tour de force of suspenseful intrigue and nuanced characters.” House of Names by Colm Toibin makes Greek tragedy come alive in all its gory glory.  Trajectory by Richard Russo is a new collection of short fiction. For non-fiction with a novel’s narrative punch, try The Whiskey Rebellion by William Hogeland.  It tells how the tax that Hamilton (of Broadway fame) levied on whiskey created a backwoods backlash.
