July 2012 Indie Next List

On the cover of this month's Indie Next list is GOLD by Chris Cleave, a novel of two old friends whose lives and friendship are tested as they vie for one last moment in the sun and Olympic gold.

View from a bookseller

“Cleave is one of the luminaries of modern fiction and his talent shines just as brightly as the title of Gold. In a novel based on the world of competitive cycling, Cleave offers all of the trauma, dedication, and courage of that elite society, but more importantly, shows us those same attributes in the lives of his other characters, particularly eight-year-old Sophie, who suffers from leukemia. This is a novel that both inspires and informs, providing sadness and exhilaration in equal measure and showing empathy for the human condition. Gold is a reading experience not to be missed.” -- Bill Cusumano, Nicola's Books, Ann Arbor, MI


Indie Next authors talk about their books...


Amy Leach talks about her new collection of essays, THINGS THAT ARE, about which Seth Marko from UCSD Bookstore, San Diego, CA writes, "This beautifully crafted , little book is filled with weird, funny, oddly poignant, and plainly stunning vignettes about the natural world around us. . .Each essay unfolds as if from the lips of an odd, old-time storyteller sitting on the edge of the firelight. . .

“This quiet lovely story of people finding joy where they can is set near the Little Snake Hills sand dunes of the Canadian West, where small-town lives can be as dry and brittle as the prairie grasses or as rich as the history of the area. . .” -- Susan Wasson, Bookworks, Albuquerque, NM

This store has one fine

This store has one fine independent movie program, great author meet-and-greet programs, and of course, readings. One distinctive activity this particular bookstore did was to publish, in large poster format, the statement the owner wrote declaring that they refused to hand over their customer list when Homeland Security came knocking, asking for a list of what customers read certain books for "investigative" purposes shortly after September 11, 2001 and the passage of the Patriot Act. The were involved in a lawsuit about this issue and, with the help of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), WON! The case was pretty high-profile in the area and gave me faith and hope that the small businesses and liberty can prevail!
