Christopher Beha's "Arts & Entertainments" is a quick, engaging beach read you could finish in a weekend—but chances are, your thoughts may linger just a little longer.
It's not that it's really deep—it shines a fictional spotlight on reality TV. It's more that, by the end of the novel, it's easy to question if anything on TV is ever real. I'm not a rube—I know that 99.9 percent of all reality TV is scripted. But what Beha accomplishes at the end of this book is a twist that isn't entirely unexpected, yet will still have you facepalming yourself.
