Thirteen hot summer reads

Sara Nelson, a critic for The Daily Beast, former editor in chief of Publishers Weekly, and author of the bestselling So Many Books, So Little Time, named her "13 hottest summer reads" for The Daily Beast.

One book on her list:
Between the Assassinations
by Aravind Adiga

The stories in his collection—written before his Man Booker-winning debut The White Tiger—again exhibit the author’s characteristic subversive sensibility and pointed prose and again address the power, corruption, and seething despair among India’s underclass.
Read about the other 12 titles on Nelson's list.
