May 2010 Indie Next List

Out now, the Indie Next List for May!

Listen to NPR on Beatrice and Virgil, the new novel by Yann Martel, his first novel since the Man Booker Prize-winning novel Life of Pi.

Don't miss the impressive debuts on May's Indie Next List: Jean Kwok's Girl in Translation and Robin Olivera's My Name is Mary Sutter.

Linking groups is a theme for May: ten people across four decades in Frederick Reiken's Day for Night, a man with four wives and nearly thirty children in The Lonely Polygamist by Brady Udall, and two related families who haven't met in Joanna Trollope's The Other Family.

Find the printed list at an independent bookstore near you. We're also offering a print-at-home version, found on the Indie Next List page directly beneath the carousel of titles, so you can read at home and take it to your local indie.

Happy reading!
