Sneak Peek: April 2018 Indie Next List

Four Macmillan titles made the April 2018 Indie Next list!

THE ITALIAN PARTY by Christina Lynch
“In her gracefully written debut, as effervescent as spumante, Lynch dramatizes the allure and power of secrets—in politics and marriage—while depicting with sly humor the collision between American do-gooder naïveté and Italian culture. Italophiles and anyone interested in spying and the expat experience (think Chris Pavone’s THE EXPATS) will love the spot-on social commentary.” — Library Journal, starred review

AFTER ANNA by Lisa Scottoline
Anna is a drop-dead gorgeous sixteen-year-old with a secret dark side and when she turns up dead, all fingers point to her stepfather. “[A] nail-biting domestic thriller…. Filled with plenty of twists and complex characters, this entertaining story builds to a satisfying conclusion.” — Publishers Weekly

WAITING FOR TOMORROW by Nathacha Appanah
This compelling novel tracks the complicated relationship of a married couple, who struggle with preserving their separate identities within their relationship, their individual artistic freedoms, and integrity, and how it all relates back to their nanny. “…the characters are complicated and well-drawn and the story immersive.” — Publishers Weekly

WADE IN THE WATER: Poems by Tracy K. Smith
The extraordinary new poetry collection from the Poet Laureate of the United States. “Technically accomplished and precisely attuned to our current cultural climate, Smith, like William Butler Yeats, once again demonstrates how an engaged, activist poetry need not forgo lyricism, compassion, and complexity to be effective.” — Library Journal
