Top 10 must-reads of July

The month of American Independence aptly sees some brilliant fiction from across the pond. From the Native Americans’ fight for freedom in 19th century Texas to illicit liaisons in The Hamptons and the boomerang generation of twenty-somethings, the US has really outdone itself this month. But we have our own talent too, of course – debut author Lottie Moggach writes the first ‘Facebook thriller’ that will no doubt kickstart a new genre, and Rachel Joyce is back with her follow-up to The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry. So grab a blanket, a picnic and your sunnies and settle down with our picks of July books.
