sept indie nextThe September 2015 Indie Next list includes 5 Macmillan titles!

SWEET CARESS by William Boyd
From the internationally bestselling author of Restless and Any Human Heart comes a novel of one photographer’s extraordinary career—a tale of love and war in the twentieth century. “In addition to the psychologically rich characterization, a wealth of atmospheric details—what the characters wear, the brands of cigarettes they smoke, and the whisky they knock back—add depth, immediacy, and authenticity to an engrossing, moving story of Amory’s turns of fortune.”
Publishers Weekly

EVERYBODY RISE by Stephanie Clifford
An August 2015 LibraryReads pick! Lying your way to the top of the social strata has devastating consequences for Evelyn Beegan, a 26-year-old desperate for a “better life” even if it’s a lie in this debut novel of class, ambition and ultimately spectacular ruin. “A compulsive, up-close-and-personal read about the first cracks in the greed-and-bleed U.S. economy that went flying off the rails so spectacularly a short time later.” — Library Journal, starred review

JADE DRAGON MOUNTAIN by Elsa Hart
A BEA 2015 “Shout ‘n Share” selection! A stunning, lyrical debut mystery in which an exiled librarian traveling through the 18th-century Chinese/Tibetan borderlands must learn the truth about a Jesuit priest’s death before the Emperor arrives. “Hart’s sure command of historical complexities, conflicts between cultures, and plot twists leads to a satisfying conclusion.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

NATURE OF THE BEAST by Louise Penny
An August 2015 LibraryReads pick! The 11th book in #1 New York Times bestselling author Penny’s Inspector Armand Gamache series already has THREE starred reviews! “A strong sense of place, a multilayered plot, and well-crafted (and for Penny’s fans, familiar) characters combine for a thoughtful, intriguing tale.”
Library Journal, starred review

BLACK MAN IN A WHITE COAT by Damon Tweedy
A BEA 2015 Editor’s Buzz & “Shout ‘n Share” selection, an ALA Annual “Read ‘n Rave” selection, and a Barnes & Noble Fall 2015 Discover Great New Writers pick! “Tweedy, an African American psychiatrist at Duke University, expertly weaves together statistics, personal anecdotes, and patient stories to explain why ‘being black can be bad for your health.’ In all, a smart, thought-provoking, frontline look at race and medicine.” — Booklist, starred review
