Sneak Peek: June 2021 Indie Next List

The June 2021 Indie Next list features 8 Macmillan titles!

ONE LAST STOP by Casey McQuiston
ISBN 9781250244499 | on sale 6/1/21

“With all the fun and camp of a drag show (of which this novel features more than one) but grounded in the tenderness of first love, this time-slip rom-com is an absolute delight. McQuiston brings the goods.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

“It is a love story on all levels, one that marvels at the magic of human connection and is unabashedly romantic.”–Booklist, starred review

THE MAIDENS by Alex Michaelides
ISBN 9781250304452 | on sale 6/15/21

“The intelligent, cerebral plot finds contemporary parallels in Euripides’s tragedies, Jacobean dramas such as The Duchess of Malfi, and Tennyson’s poetry. The devastating ending shows just how little the troubled Mariana knows about the human psyche or herself. Michaelides is on a roll.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Michaelides’ stage-setting skills are as masterful here, as they were in THE SILENT PATIENT (2019); another tense, cleverly twisted winner.”–Booklist, starred review

THE CHOSEN AND THE BEAUTIFUL by Nghi Vo
ISBN 9781250784780 | on sale 6/1/21

“The plot unravels tantalizingly slowly, and Vo’s immersive prose never ceases to captivate. The Gatsby-related details and hints of magic will keep readers spellbound from start to finish.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

THE KINGDOMS by Natasha Pulley
ISBN 9781635576085 | on sale 5/25/21

“Pulley’s latest genre-bending feat masterfully combines history, speculative fiction, queer romance, and more into an unputdownable whole… This is a stunner.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

ONE TWO THREE by Laurie Frankel
ISBN 9781250236777 | on sale 6/8/21

PALACE OF THE DROWNED by Christine Mangan
ISBN 9781250788429 | on sale 6/1/21

“Mangan follows her well-received debut, 2018’s TANGERINE, with an elegantly elegiac thriller… [Mangan] more than lives up to the promise of her debut.”–Publishers Weekly

THE PHOTOGRAPHER by Mary Dixie Carter
