Sneak Peek: November 2016 Indie Next List

indie nextThe November 2016 Indie Next list includes two Macmillan titles!

THE NEXT by Stephanie Gangi
A Library Journal “Summer Promise Debut Novels” pick & BEA 2016 “Shout ‘n Share” selection! This haunting debut novel is narrated by the ghost of Joanna DeAngelis, a woman who plots revenge on her much-younger ex-boyfriend. “THE NEXT is fast-paced and engrossing reading for anyone who has entertained revenge fantasies (so much easier when you’re a ghost) and for readers of dysfunctional family fiction with some humor, like Jonathan Tropper’s THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU.” — Booklist

CABO DE GATA by Eugen Ruge
“In German Book Prize winner Ruge’s new novel, a writer abandons his life in Berlin and embarks on a journey toward self-realization. With colloquial prose and sardonic wit, Ruge eruditely captures his narrator’s precarious reality and creates a world that’s a pleasure to observe and meander through. At times ruefully hilarious and absurd, this slight, philosophical book will humor anyone who’s ever questioned his or her place in this unforgiving universe.” — Kirkus Reviews
