The novels on the November IndieNext list, with commentary

- I See You Everywhere by Julia Glass (couldn’t get through her first, but clearly it was just me)
- The Fire: A Novel by Katherine Neville (I stood next to her in a banquet line one year and I GUSHED. I was there as an author, but she seemed to me like an AUTHOR (She wrote The Eight, which I loved!). Plus she was wearing a beautiful silver-gray dress.
- The Memorist by M.J. Rose (one of those rare from self-published to success stories. I’ve been in some of the same internet groups with her)
- Songs for the Missing: A Novel by Stewart O'Nan (The man writes like a dream, and this story about a missing girl sounds right up my alley)
- Between Here and April by Deborah Copaken Kogan (I need to read this for the title alone)
- Conspiracy of Silence by Martha Powers (the description of this book – a journalist who finds out her whole life is a lie - is intriguing)
- The Wordy Shipmates by Sarah Vowell (sure to be unique)
- A Mercy: A Novel by Toni Morrison (Toni Morrison – you don’t need to say more)
- Once Were Cops: A Novel by Ken Bruen (My dear departed friend Barbara Seranella loved him)
- Hardly Knew Her: Stories by Laura Lippman (Everything Laura writes is good)
- The Wettest County in the World: A Novel Based on a True Story by Matt Bondurant
- The Eleventh Man: A Novel by Ivan Doig (a beloved NW author)
- Second Violin: An Inspector Troy Thriller by John Lawton (interesting that they are calling what is obviously a series mystery a “thriller”)
- Freeman Walker: A Novel by David Allan Cates
