It's fair to say that here at the Lifted Brow , we like books. If you're looking for a new summertime read, have a gander at some of these titles, handpicked by the coolest people ever with the most impeccable taste in books.

Argosy is less a book of poetry than it is a literary artefact; a multi-modal, form-bending collision of poetics, image, collage and photography. Encountering these pages can be a confounding and surreal experience. As Li says in an interview with Peril : "everything, when you look closely, is strange: people, history, language—language most of all. The more I think about poetry as a genre, the more I see it as a space for estrangement: where language—that which ostensibly provides a common ground on which to stand—can be most thoroughly interrogated.
So instead let me recommend Pond by Claire-Louise Bennett. An odd and utterly compelling fiction about a woman, alone, on the west coast of Ireland, Pond is a book I read in a greedy, giddy rush last summer, and then came back to again and again across this year, unable to shake it. Her reflections on food are particularly gleeful — binned dinners, the joys of eating Spanish oranges after sex, almond flakes that one must use cautiously lest they resemble fingernails and ruin an otherwise delicious breakfast.
