Larb Digital Edition : Summer Reading by Tara Isabella Burton( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Summer reading means different things to different people. Some see summer and vacation as a time to tackle long books, difficult books, or classics -- when you have more free time, you have more time to get lost in another world, or to contemplate some of the existing world's heaviest lessons. Hence, this month's LARB Digital Edition, featuring reviews of works from two major voices in international literature that have been newly translated into English, Wiesliwski and Faris Al-Shidyaq; Juliet Steven's brilliant audiobook reading of George's Eliot's Middlemarch; a new edition of collected short stories from Stefan Zweig, the writer who was the inspiration for Wes Anderson's film Grand Budapest Hotel; and fresh works by three major L.A.-based novelists, Bruce Wagner, Mona Simpson, and Michelle Huneven. Happy reading!
