RYE, N.Y. -- It's officially summer..and you know what that means: Beach reads!
Here, suggestions from Alyson Powers of Rye's Arcade Booksellers .
The Rocks by Peter Nichols : "This beautifully crafted story, set against the dreamy Mediterranean island of Mallorca, is a mysterious and tragic love story told in reverse," said Powers.
Disclaimer by Renee Knight: "A brilliant psychological thriller about a documentary filmmaker with a dark past who finds a book on her bedside and realizes it’s a fictionalized account of the worst thing she’s ever done."
Saint Mazie by Jami Attenberg: " Attenberg’s wonderful follow-up to The Middlesteins is based on the true story of Mazie Phillips, a jazz age party girl and the proprietress of a famed NYC theater who became an unlikely caretaker to New York’s rampant homeless population during the Great Depression."
Loving Day by Mat Johnson: "A comic, unmistakably honest novel that marvelously intertwines a father-daughter relationship, a ghost story, and the biracial struggle in America."
The Book of Speculation by Erika Swyler: "A quirky and moving debut novel is about a young librarian who receives a mysterious old book on her doorstep, written by the owner of an 18th century travelling carnival."
