Sneak Peek: April 2021 Indie Next List

The April 2021 Indie Next list features 5 Macmillan titles!

BROKEN (in the best possible way) by Jenny Lawson
ISBN 9781250077035, on sale 4/6/21

“[Lawson] also makes others laugh. Her delivery is zany, clever, and raunchy. Her conversations with party guests, her long-suffering husband, her sister, and even herself are flat-out hilarious. And the situations she finds herself in are comic gold. Beneath the banter, however, is a heartbreaking chronicle of what goes on in the mind of a person dealing with anxiety and depression… Her insights are eye-opening as she gives readers a first-hand view of the struggles caused by mental illness. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Stock up for Lawson’s millions of readers, who cherish her candor and have been eagerly awaiting her new book.”–Booklist, starred review

OF WOMEN AND SALT by Gabriela Garcia
ISBN 9781250776686, on sale 3/30/21

“Garcia’s dexterous debut chronicles the travails of a Cuban immigrant family… This riveting account will please readers of sweeping multigenerational stories.”–Publishers Weekly

FINDING FREEDOM: A Cook’s Story; Remaking a Life from Scratch by Erin French
ISBN 9781250312341, on sale 4/6/21

“An acclaimed chef and restaurateur offers engaging stories from the kitchen and beyond… A canny life story from a determined woman with the gift of vision and the wherewithal to implement it.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

THE LOST VILLAGE by Camilla Sten
ISBN 9781250249258, on sale 3/23/21

“Sten’s novel, already a hit across Europe, is a horror-suspense hybrid, told through a dual timeline with short chapters that keep the pacing brisk and make the novel very hard to put down. The killer setup is more than a gimmick; it is a puzzle that delivers maximum dread with clues revealed with remarkable restraint, and as the situation goes from bad to worse to terrifying, readers will revel in the chills. A great choice for fans of Clay McLeod Chapman’s THE REMAKING (2019), Thomas Olde Heuvelt’s HEX (2016), and Jennifer McMahon.”–Booklist

THE GOOD SISTER by Sally Hepworth
ISBN 9781250120953, on sale 4/13/21

“Hepworth’s latest (after THE MOTHER-IN-LAW) is written from one sister’s perspective with the other’s thoughts in diary form. It’s a warped tale of twisted memories and skewed perceptions that will make fans of psychological thrillers say, ‘Wow, I didn’t see that coming.'”–Library Journal, starred review
