Five Fine Books for July

I meant to post five story suggestions each month here (I could post twenty or more, but five seemed good at the time) but I'm going to post five books this month instead.  Some recent purchases and fine reads.  If you've read them, I'm pleased to join the club, if not, please invest or visit your local library, if, like myself, you may not be able to invest at this time.

* The Cat's Table by Michael Ondaatje
