The literature: emmastraub's THE VACATIONERS

The libation: We here at Proof Reading firmly believe that no family vacation should be endured without the strategic application of some local liquor. And when in Mallorca, do as the Mallorcans do. Palo de Mallorca was initially brewed as an herbal curative for malaria in the 1600s, but as time went on, the islanders started adding alcohol and using it more for - well, let’s just call it self-medication.

Pour a small measure over ice and sip by the pool as your family works out their issues back in the hotel room - after all, you can only drink Palo on Mallorca, but your family is your family no matter where you go.

New York Magazine recommends books for summer reading, including Riverhead Books titles The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer, The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls by Anton Disclafani, and Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures by Emma Straub. I want to read every book on this list!

Last night, several Riverheads took the stage at the One Story Debutante Ball, which celebrates emerging writers. See Claire Vaye Watkins being escorted to the stage, then featured with her book, Battleborn. Dan Chaon walks with Emma Straub, author of Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures, and Editor Megan Lynch with Manuel Gonzales, author of The Miniature Wife.
