This season's crop of must-reads includes new novels from the authors of The Kite Runner and The Glass Castle; epics of Texas and of New York; continent-spanning adventures via car, plane and pirate ship; and stories of sisters, sons and connubial mayhem."  Sound interesting?  Click "read more" for the list, linked to the catalog for easy requesting.  Happy beach reading!
