10 best books of July: the Monitor's picks

The Monitor's book critics give thumbs up to these 10 new July titles.

10. "The Great Glass Sea," by Josh Weil

This unusual debut novel mingles elements of present-day Russia with a dystopian future to tell a tale of two brothers and their brushes with collective farming, self-made billionaires, and modern-day politics. The book is an ambitious epic and offers an impressive showcase for Weil's intelligence, imagination, and story-telling skills. You can see the Monitor's full review of "The Great Glass Sea" here.
