The book for July is Adam Haslett's Union Atlantic - a Lambda award-winning novel.

Failing banks, war crimes, and first love, this novel has it all - a topic utterly relevant to today, an intimate knowledge of banking that bristles with telling details, and an explosive story that's a lot like opening a bottle of Coke that's been throughly shaken.

Seventeen-year-old Nate Fuller, a senior at Finden High, has failed to fill out his college applications and hires as a tutor old Charlotte Graves, a former history teacher who was let go for her outspoken politics. She's about to bring a law suit against the town of Finden for illegally selling land bequeathed to the town's safekeeping by her father. It's been sold to a handsome, thirty-seven-year-old ex-military banking executive who has chopped down the trees to build an obscenely large dream house. When Nate breaks into that dream house and is caught by the young banker, he stumbles into a deadly web of secrets, lies and betrayals.

Compulsively readable, hilarious and heartbreaking, it's a complex morality tale for thinking adults, as timely as yesterday's headlines.
