Amazon's Best Books of July: Today's Releases



All is not forgottenWith the exception of a highly entertaining biography of a trailblazing feminist and cultural icon, the Best of the Month selections released today share something in common: they're all a bit on the dark side. Starting with Wendy Walker's All Is Not Forgotten, Senior Editor Seira Wilson warns that the first chapter "is a doozy" (I second that). Delving into the aftermath of a horrific attack, Wilson says "it's worth wading through every [brutal passage] to reach the zinger at the end." 

Here is the rest of the best of July, available starting today.

The Heavenly Table by Donald Ray Pollock
 
Donald Ray Pollock is an acquired taste, and his latest book is no exception. But as Senior Editor Jon Foro argues: "The best reason to read The Heavenly Table is to witness a writer constantly pushing the borders of imagination--and often propriety--while daring his readers to reassess their own."

Siracusa by Delia Ephron
 
At the start of this slyly sinister novel, you know something has gone terribly awry in a Sicilian town where two couples have decided to vacation—one of them with their enigmatic ten-year-old in tow. As Ephron teases out the details, she also provides an important lesson for those of you who haven't learned it from The Amazing Race—choose your travel companions wisely.
