Today may be the first day of summer, but it’s also the day #AGentlemanInMoscow by @amortowles begins in 1922! Happy summer & reading ☀️📚 (📷: @thepolitenewyorker)

For those who need their British fix post-Royal Wedding: The mystery at the heart of #ADoubleLife by Flynn Berry was inspired by a notorious unsolved crime: the Lord Lucan Case, in which a British lord murdered his children’s nanny, attempted to kill his wife and disappeared, never to be seen again. Flynn Berry vividly imagines his daughter Claire’s search to uncover what really happened that night. Claire immerses herself in her father’s abandoned life, doing whatever it takes to get close to the rich, titled families she believes helped him escape—just maybe, close enough to finally find him.
