New Voices | June 2012 Indie Next List

June Indie Next List. . .

On the cover of this month's IndieNext list is CANADA by Richard Ford, a "haunting and elemental novel about a young man forced by catastrophic circumstance to reconcile himself to a world that has been rendered unrecognizable."

View from a bookseller

Canada, Richard Ford's long-awaited new novel, is not one to be rushed. While the plot sounds sensational -- robbery, murders, a flight across the Canadian border -- Ford's laconic, measured prose forces the reader to slow the pace and savor the story. This is a novel about actions, intentions, and consequences as well as about belonging, introspection, and the solitary nature of life. Powerful and atmospheric, Canada will excite and gratify Ford's fans and introduce newcomers to a masterful American writer.” -- Tova Beiser, Brown University Bookstore, Providence, RI

Indie Next authors talk about their books...

Joseph Kanon talks about Istanbul and his new novel, ISTANBUL PASSAGE, about which Darwin Ellis from Books on the Common, Ridgefield, CT writes, ". . . Istanbul in 1945 -- a caldron of intrigue with layer upon layer of cultures, religions, security organizations, spies, police, foreign agents, and refugees -- is the backdrop for this tale of moral ambiguity. . .Istanbul Passage is atmospheric, believable, fast-paced, and elegantly written for a thoroughly absorbing read.”

Indie Next around the web. . .

"From the financial trader in the midst of growing midlife and career crises, to the Pakistani family struggling with faith and family, to a dying woman and her street artist son, Lanchester effortlessly weaves myriad stories into brief chapters to create a written tapestry of remarkable color and depth” - Catherine Weller, Weller Book Works, Salt Lake City, UT

Listen to the NPR interview: Right on the Money: A Capital Book for Our Times

“Through wonderful, sometimes tragic and often quirky characters, Segal offers finely honed truths about humanity. I highly recommend this book -- a wonderful summer read with some guts to it!” -- Susan Tyler, The Book Bin, Onley, VA

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!
