June Books

 

Here are this month’s book recommendations from Salon.com book critic Laura Miller. While her fiction choices veer a little toward the macabre, she promises that they all are good reads:

Fiction


The Little Stranger, by Sarah Waters

 

How To Sell, by Clancy Martin

 

Dark Places, by Gillian Flynn

 

Nonfiction


Rapt: Attention and the Focused Life, by Winifred Gallagher

 

Laura also recommended listening to audio tapes of those classics you haven’t had time to read, and mentioned that recently she listened to a number of Anthony Trollope’s novels. Here’s the Amazon page showing which Trollope novels are available on audio book, but of course, you can probably get most of these at your local library.
