These Best of the Month selections, available starting today, offer the epic and the epically creepy, starting with Emma Cline's The Girls. Editorial Director Sara Nelson was dubious about this debut from the start. It was getting a lot of buzz, but how could such a young author capture the essence of the 60s, not to mention the emotional complexities of a woman seduced into a Manson-like cult. The verdict?--"The Girls really is as good as they’re saying."
