'Beautiful Ruins' by Jess Walter

<b>Release date</b>: June 12, 2012<BR><BR>

<b>Why to throw it in your beach bag</b>: Though not exactly <i>about</i> Elizabeth Taylor, this novel weaves a fascinating tale about how her antics on the set of "Cleopatra" had a ripple effect, making waves from the tiny coastal town of Porto Vergogna, Italy in 1962 to present-day Hollywood. It's a fascinating story of a train-wreck romance -- though, not the one you expect, perhaps -- and with Lindsay Lohan's biopic on the way, we'd rather hear it this way first. <BR><BR>
