I would add anything by Lorrie Moore. Armistead Maupin’s series of Tales of the City is also good summer reading.
Agree. ‘Michael Tolliver Lives’, which is Maupin’s new episode in the series, is the smoothest and jolliest read ever and can be tackled in half a day.
Dancer from the Dance by Andrew Holleran. Especially surreal if you read it on the LIRR and Fire Island.
The *Dance to the Music of Time* series by Anthony Powell makes for absorbing reading.
Yes yes amazing tip – I’ve only ever read the first part of DANCE TO THE MUSIC OF TIME, totally keep meaning to read the other um three thousand sections
And obviously DANCER FROM THE DANCE is beyond amazing, his later works maybe less so jolly for the beach…
pity the southern hemisphere reader, with all this talk poolsides and beaches. still i guess the books work for the fireside as well . . if we don’t like them we can toss them in when we’re done.
