NEW HEATHER'S PICKS & INDIGO SPOTLIGHT

Indigo CEO and Chief Booklover, Heather Reisman, is announcing new Heather's Picks in September: Zero to One by Peter Thiel, Leonard Cohen Everybody Knows by Harvey Kubernik, The Children Act by Ian McEwan and The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters.

Zero to One draws on everything Peter Thiel has learned as co-founder of PayPal and Palantir and then an investor in hundreds of startups, including Facebook and SpaceX. The single most powerful pattern Thiel has noticed is that successful people find value in unexpected places, and they do this by thinking about business from first principles instead of formulas. Ask not, what would Mark do? Ask: what valuable company is nobody building?

As a poet, singer-songwriter and author, the sheer genius and poignant work of Canada's most beloved Renaissance man, Leonard Cohen, has earned him generations of fans – including many performers, from Johnny Cash to Adele.  Beginning with experiences of the young poet and author in Montreal, Leonard Cohen Everybody Knows takes readers through Cohen's battles with drugs, love, and bankruptcy, as well as his exploration of spirituality and choice to become a Buddhist monk while simultaneously reaffirming his Jewish faith.

Ian McEwan returns to the intense, emotionally complex territory of Atonement with The Children Act, an intimate tale of a judge suddenly adrift in her life, caught between parents' wishes and the life of a child.

The Paying Guests is a truly extraordinary, masterful novel of brilliant storytelling, sensuality, and psychological suspense set in post-WWI London, from the internationally bestselling author of The Little Stranger. Three-time Booker Prize finalist Sarah Waters is at the height of her powers, proving once again that her eye for the telling details of class and character that draw people together as well as tear them apart is second to none.

The Indigo Spotlight program introduces readers to a new standout title every month selected and curated by our expert book buyers. We're pleased to announce that September's Indigo Spotlight title is We Are Not Ourselves by Matthew Thomas.

Destined to be a classic, this powerfully moving, multigenerational debut novel of an Irish-American family is nothing short of a masterwork. Novelist Matthew Thomas charts the story of the American Century, particularly the promise of domestic bliss and economic prosperity that captured hearts and minds after WWII. The result is a riveting and affecting work of art; one that reminds us that life is more than a tally of victories and defeats, that we live to love and be loved, and that we should tell each other so before the moment slips away.

#WorldsBiggestBookClub!

Take part in Indigo's monthly Twitter party that brings book lovers together to discuss great reads in 140 characters or less. The next book club selection is Half Bad and the author, Sally Green (@Sa11eGreen), will be taking part in the online discussion on Sept. 24.

Half Bad is a gripping tale of alienation and the indomitable will to survive, a story that will grab hold of you and not let go until the very last page. Follow @chaptersindigo and use #WorldsBiggestBookClub to take part in the online discussion.
