indie nextThe November 2014 Indie Next list was recently announced and it includes some fabulous Macmillan titles!

THE LAUGHING MONSTERS by Denis Johnson
“In a work that’s part spy novel and part buddy tale, Johnson aptly locates his portrayal of a shadowy world of complicated relationships and ever-shifting alliances in one of the more broken places on the planet. This is what you might get if you combined Casablanca‘s cynicism and sense of intrigue with a touch of Heart of Darkness post-9/11.” — Library Journal, starred review
