Novelists Randy Susan Meyers and M.J. Rose present page-turners for summer reading. Meyers shares a new novel about biases surrounding women and weight. “Waisted” follows two women who are the subject of a new reality documentary about extreme weight loss. When the women discover that the show's creators have sinister motives, they devise a scheme to expose the truth. M.J. Rose, bestselling author of “The Library of Light and Shadow,” crafts a dazzling Jazz Age jewel—a novel of ambition and betrayal about a young painter whose traumatic past threatens to derail her career at a prestigious summer artists’ colony run by Louis Comfort Tiffany.
