LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

ummer is often characterized as a time for doing light reading, snacking away at junky romances and escapist fare. But life's too short to waste on disposable literature, so check out some of these titles while it's hot outside.

George Saunders isn't interested in the way things are in real time, but he is interested in the internal skeleton, the spiritual truth below the truth. His new collection of stories, "Pastoralia," finds fans in two of our critics.

Two new books of photographs celebrate the joys of sex with differing results. One is a bare-skin memoir of old girlfriends, the other just a step below porn.

Plus Carl Hiaasen's latest, and more.
