33 Best Summer Beach Reads 2022 – Top Summer Books to Read on Vacation – Town & Country
Fire Island, it seems, is having a moment. This summer, the slip of a summer destination off of Long Tropical isle, isn’t just a vacation spot, it’s also a movie, and the subject of Jack Parlett’s engrossing history. He tells the story of the place—a getaway for many, but specifically the queer community—through the stories of the creative geniuses from Oscar Wilde to James Badlwin, Frank O’Hara, and Patricia Highsmith—who’ve loved the island and the freedom, magic, and community it represents. This is essential reading for the ferry from Sayville or wherever you happen to be.
