Worldly Summer Reading

At the National, Richard Whitehead creates an interactive map of “summer reading from around the world.” Click on a country, and get a book recommendation with this promise:
Every novel on this summer reading list promises to make you look at unfamiliar scenes and the people you encounter with fresh eyes. Yes, you could just buy a guidebook at the airport—but where’s the fun in that?
