Back to 31 Days of Summer

Marisha Pessl’s Summer Media Refresh

The “Night Film” author on “Orphan Black,” J.K. Rowling, Kid Cudi, and more

Refresher Course

Now that we’ve plowed through all our friends’ book recommendations, caught up on every show, and played the same song on repeat (looking at you, “Blurred Lines”), our gadgets need a download overhaul.

So after tearing through Marisha Pessl’s Night Film, a suspenseful tale wrought with secret websites, faked news stories, a cultish underground film director, and myriad cultural references, we tapped the NYC-based author for her favorite all-around summer hits. But let us suggest starting with her new book.

Night Film is available at amazon.com, $17.
