Your Shelf Life: 5 Books to Read in June

A curated list of this month's top reads


Published:

Homegoing is an epic tale of history and change as experienced by two sisters, one who remains in their home country of Ghana and the other forced into slavery and sent to America. Author Yaa Gyasi is being heralded for her ability to chart the intimate and personal among sweeping historical forces.

Sons and Daughters of Ease and Plenty by Ramona Ausubel feels like a summer beach read perfectly in sync with current political and economic times. Fern and Edgar, parents of three children, are wealthy, but when the family inheritance suddenly disappears, life, values, and marriage are forever altered.

Lena Dunham and Jennifer Egan are both praising Emma Cline’s debut novel The Girls, about a teenager enthralled by an older girl and the cult she lives with.

Virginia Heffernan analyzes the internet and calls it a “massive and collaborative work of realist art” in Magic and Loss: The Internet as Art.

If you’re a fan of The Smiths, you’ll covet Rizzoli’s slick new coffee table book of rarely seen photographs of the beloved rock band.
