Sneak Peek: March 2018 Indie Next List

Seven Macmillan titles made the March 2018 Indie Next list!

SOMETIMES I LIE by Alice Feeney
Also available in audio
A March 2018 LibraryReads pick and one of Bustle’s “2018 Debuts You Need in Your TBR Pile!” My name is Amber Reynolds. There are three things you should know about me: 1. I’m in a coma. 2. My husband doesn’t love me anymore. 3. Sometimes I lie. So opens this brilliant psychological thriller by former BBC news producer, Alice Feeney. “…a serpentine tale of betrayal, madness, and murder. Feeney is definitely a writer to watch.” — Publishers Weekly

EAT THE APPLE by Matt Young
THREE starred reviews! “This honest war memoir will shock and horrify, will cause readers to tear up, and will make them wish they could tell a 19-year-old marine that everything will be okay. Highly recommended for all collections.” — Library Journal, starred review

REGISTERS OF ILLUMINATED VILLAGES: Poems by Tarfia Faizullah
Faizullah’s highly anticipated second collection extends and transforms her powerful accounts of violence, war, and loss into poems of many forms and voices—elegies, outcries, self-portraits, and larger-scale confrontations with discrimination, family, and memory.

THE HUSH by John Hart
Also available in audio
New York Times bestselling and LibraryReads author Hart’s sequel to THE LAST CHILD picks up ten years later when Johnny Merrimon is living in the wilds beyond the town where a dangerous force is at play. “Hart continues to deepen his palette in this ambitious sequel, which is distinctive enough in story and tone to be read as a stand-alone. Recommended for fans of Dennis Lehane’s SHUTTER ISLAND and Tom Franklin’s CROOKED LETTER, CROOKED LETTER.” — Library Journal readmoreremove

It’s National Poetry Month!

♫♪♫♪♫ Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
We made a poetry Edelweiss collection,
Just for librarians like you! ♫♪♫♪♫

Happy National Poetry Month! Check out our amazing Edelweiss collection of nearly 200(!) great poetry books and then hear some poems from our friends at Farrar, Straus & Giroux—literally.

Inspired by John Giornio’s classic Dial-A-Poem, FSG made a poetry hotline of their own. Each day you can call 949-DIAL-FSG (949-342-5374) to hear President and Publisher (and poet himself) Jonathan Galassi recite one of his favorite poems from a recently published collection. They’re putting new poems on the answering machine every weekday, so keep calling!

Hot Title Alert: 10:04

NPR, The New York Times, and Entertainment Weekly are but a few of the many fans of Ben Lerner’s 10:04. Dear librarian, won’t you join us on the 10:04 bandwagon*?

**e-mail Library@macmillanusa.com (subject: 10:04) for your complimentary copy today.

“A mind-blowing book…” — Maureen Corrigan, NPR’s Fresh Air

Mr. Lerner is among the most interesting young American novelists at present for several reasons, one being that he’s akin to a young Brooklynite version of the Norwegian novelist Karl Ove Knausgaard. That is, in his books, little happens, yet everything happens. We come to relish seeing the world through this man’s eyes.” — Dwight Garner, the New York Times

Ingenious… Lerner packs so much brilliance and humor into each episode… This brain-tickling book imbues real experiences with a feeling of artistic possibility, leaving the observable world ‘a little changed, a little charged.’” — Sam Sacks, The Wall Street Journal

“A funny, deeply observational metaphysical romp.”Entertainment Weekly, Grade: A

“A generous, provocative, ambitious Chinese box of a novel, 10:04 is a near-perfect piece of literature, affirmative of both life and art, written with the full force of Lerner’s intellectual, aesthetic, and empathetic powers, which are as considerable as they are vitalizing.” — Los Angeles Review of Books

This masterful, at times dizzying novel reevaluates not just what fiction can do but what it is. Cuttingly hilarious and incisive, Lerner’s novel would be a success without the layers of fiction (on reality on fiction). But with that narrative device, the book achieves brilliance, at once a study of how fiction functions and an expansive catalogue of life.” — Time Out New York, 5 out of 5 stars
