December 2012 Indie Next List

On the cover of this month's Indie Next list is THOMAS JEFFERSON: THE ART OF POWER by Jon Meacham

View from a bookseller

"Meacham's engaging biography reveals the extraordinary skills of this uniquely gifted and driven man as wellas his heart and soul. In a poetic, moving epilogue, Meacham explains Jefferson's unabated appeal: 'He endures because we can see in him all the varied and wondrous possibilities of the human experience - the thirst for knowledge, the capacity to create, the love of family and friends, the hunger for accomplishment, the applause of the world, the marshaling of power, the bending of others to one's own vision.' Jefferson's story has never been more perfectly told. Quite simply, Meacham has written a masterpiece"
--Christopher Rose, Andover Bookstore, Andover, MA

Indie Next authors talk about their books...

Watch a trailer for Jacob Tomsky's new book, HEADS IN BED, about which Mary Muller from Market Block Books in Troy, NY says, "Here is the authentic voice of the Front Desk Agent: funny, experienced, profane, and able to tell a good story or two. Tomsky shares his story of beginning as a parking valet and rising to the heights of the front desk, with a horrifying detour through housekeeping along the way. . .Heads in Beds does for hotel workers what Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential did for restaurant workers."

"This incredible novel traces the separate trajectories of five unforgettable lives in five different time periods. Each life story is expertly etched by Faulks, and each could stand alone, but the stories become even more compelling as they join to form a provocative whole”
--Jenny Lyons, The King's English Bookshop, Salt Lake City, UT
