Sneak Peek: February 2018 Indie Next List

Four Macmillan titles made the February 2018 Indie Next list!

THE GREAT ALONE by Kristin Hannah
One of Publishers Weekly‘s Spring 2018 Literary Fiction picks with two starred reviews! From the author of the worldwide phenomenon, THE NIGHTINGALE, comes a story of a family in crisis and a young girl struggling to survive at the edge of the world, in America’s last true frontier: Alaska. “Hannah’s follow-up to her series of blockbuster bestsellers will thrill her fans with its combination of Greek tragedy, Romeo and Juliet-like coming-of-age story, and domestic potboiler. A tour de force.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

MOTHERS OF SPARTA by Dawn Davies
A Winter/Spring 2018 Indies Introduce pick! Discovered by Michael Ondaatje, Davies’ dazzling literary memoir has shades of Mary Karr, Anne Lamott, and Jenny Lawson as she examines motherhood and what it’s like to be a woman trying to carve a place for herself in the world, no matter how unyielding the rock can be. “Davies’ first book is magnetic attraction in memoir form: it will pull readers in with stories that are funny, insightful, and bordering on farce while also pushing them away with darker pieces about loss, mental illness, and an immense amount of physical pain. Readers will laugh and cry, probably at the same time.” — Booklist

THE MITFORD MURDERS by Jessica Fellowes
New York Times bestselling author Fellowes draws on a true unsolved crime from the 1920s in a mystery starring a maid working for the Mitford sisters. “…the heroine is appealingly plucky, and the reader sinks into the rich period detail as pleasantly as into an overstuffed sofa.” — Kirkus Reviews readmoreremove
