What all the smart people will be pretending to read on the beaches of the world this summer

What page are you on?

Never mind swimwear, if you’re looking for something eye-catching for the beach this summer you could do a whole lot worse than Michael Arditti’s The Enemy of the Good. Which is a *does the mime from charades* Yes, a book.

With a pot-boiling plot about a family in meltdown and a storyline about how big Jesus’s knob is, it races along but – unlike books with brightly coloured covers – is clever into the bargain. And not even in a boring way. So you might, in between bulge-watching by the pool, you know, actually read it!

With a big-up by one of our favourites, Philip Pullman, he of His Dark Materials fame, it has one last selling-point: there is lots of white space on the cover for phone numbers.
