Happy early summer! Celebrate beach season by picking out your next great read. Our critics recommend everything from thrillers to literary fiction in an interactive gallery. Bob Minzesheimer reflects on iconic newsman Walter Cronkite with biographer Douglas Brinkley (plus a gallery from Cronkite's life.) Also, check out profiles and video interviews with three hot summer authors, Laura Moriarty (The Chaperone,) Larry Tye (Superman) and Stephen Carter (The Impeachment of Abraham Lincoln).
