Novels and summer. Rodgers and Astaire, baguettes and cheese, stars and dark skies--novels and summer are natural mates. Pour yourself a glass of mint ice tea, open the book, and step into into another world. Time seems ample, the days stretch before you. Wherever you go, a book can go with you and enhance the journey. Here's Blueshoe's recommendations for Summer 2002 reading:

Haruki Murakami, Sputnik Sweetheart (novel, 2001)

Annie Dillard, For the Time Being (non-fiction, 1999)

Jonathan Franzone, The Corrections (novel, 2001)

Andrea Barrett, Ship Fever (short stories, 1996)

Billie Collins, Sailing Alone Around the Room (poetry, 2001)

Jane Smiley, Moo (novel, 1995)
