Well, it’s May. The last two weeks have brought to mind both winter and summer; evidently, spring this year is going for more of a median than an actual season. Much like that fluctuation, May brings with it a wide-ranging cohort of books, encompassing everything from bold travelogues to surreal comics. What are we excited about reading this month? Here are a few of the books that caught our eye.
