Summer People by Brian Groh
It's getting to be that time of year when we all start looking for a good "beach read" and Brian Groh's debut novel arrives just in time. Less a story of class warfare than a story of class facination, Groh's protagonist spends a summer treading the murky waters of WASP rights and wrongs, trying constantly to do the correct thing. In his chapter titles, Groh cleverly references the Victorian and Edwardian writers that he draws thematic inspiration from. Definitely find a sunny spot, pour yourself an iced tea (or better yet, a G&T!) and settle in for a great read!!
