June’s here and it’s suddenly turned humid in our corner of the world. This isn’t all that surprising, but — for those who saver milder temperatures — it’s not exactly the best thing ever. And so, perhaps, it’s time to dub our June reads as ideal for reading in an air-conditioned room somewhere, or perhaps situated by a breezy outdoor spot. These books cover a lot of ground, from haunting memoirs to phantasmagorical fiction, as befits a time of constant change.
In our afternoon reading: reviews of novels by Kristen Arnett and Johannes Anyuru, an interview with Ibram X. Kendi, and more.
We’ll be off for the holiday tomorrow. Normal posting will resume on Friday.
