1. Summer House with Swimming Pool
Author Herman Koch, who also wrote The Dinner – set entirely at a meal between four terrible people — will release Summer House with Swimming Pool on June 3. This book, much like The Dinner, gives readers some honest insight into humanity. “A doctor who specializes in treating celebrities is forced to explain the death of a famous actor on his operating table less than a year after their families spent an eventful vacation together,” according to The Week. Dr. Marc Schlosser certainly isn’t upset that actor Ralph Meier is dead, but he can’t let people know that — his reputation is at stake.
