Sneak Peek: August 2017 Indie Next List

The August 2017 Indie Next list includes 4 Macmillan titles!

EMMA IN THE NIGHT by Wendy Walker

“Both twisted and twisty, this smart psychological thriller sets a new standard for unreliable narrators.” — Booklist, starred review

“Walker’s portrayal of the ways in which a narcissistic, self-involved mother can affect her children deepens the plot as it builds to a shocking finale.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

HAPPINESS: The Crooked Little Road to Semi-Ever After by Heather Harpham

“An award-winning writer, performer, and teacher of physical theater/improvisation, Harpham tells a heartrending story of young love, getting pregnant, her partner’s lack of interest in having children, returning home alone, then discovering hours after giving birth that something was dangerously wrong with her baby. There are terrible choices to make and a crooked little road to follow toward some kind of radiant happiness.”–LJ Pre-Pub Alert

“Harpham’s ability to capture an audience’s emotions takes center stage as a memoirist. Her deeply personal yet witty narrative style makes the reader feel instantly connected, as if Harpham is a close friend traveling a familiar ‘crooked little road to semi-ever after.’ Hers is a journey evoking a spectrum of emotions: hope, sadness, anger and, yes, happiness.” — Shelf Awareness

THE BEDLAM STACKS by Natasha Pulley

“The imagination [Pulley] showed in her impressive debut was no fluke…Pulley understands her genre–swashbuckling costume fantasy–but she deals in surprises, not clichés…[A] meditation on love, trust, and the passage of time.”–Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Fans of The Watchmaker of Filigree Street (who will be pleased that a character from that novel makes a cameo appearance) know that Pulley has a way with damaged characters who are looking for a new purpose in life. While there are steampunk elements, including clockwork lamps, there’s also a subtle inexplicable magic running throughout the unusual, remote setting.”–Library Journal

BEAST by Paul Kingsnorth

“A tour de force, reminiscent of the best of John Fowles and David Mitchell.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review
