Your Shelf Life: 5 Books to Read in July

A curated list of this month's top reads


Give Me Your Hand is Megan Abbott’s new psychological thriller about two high school girls torn apart over a dark secret that, years later, forces them to reckon with what they know about each other.

The Death of Truth is Pulitzer Prize–winning literary critic Michiko Kakutani’s ambitious take on “fake news” and our society’s degrading relationship with the truth.

Set in violence-plagued 1990s Colombia, Fruit of the Drunken Tree is Ingrid Rojas Contreras’s debut novel. It centers on a friendship between a privileged girl and the family’s 13-year-old maid from Bogotá’s slums.

KPBS border reporter Jean Guerrero’s powerful memoir, Crux, is about her relationship with and investigation into her charismatic but deeply troubled father, leading her to discover a mystical family history.

Artist Jonathan Santlofer’s wife dies suddenly, leaving him without his “reality check and echo.” The Widower’s Notebook is his beautifully written memoir—in droll humor—about the aftermath.
