NEW HEATHER'S PICK

Indigo CEO and Chief Booklover Heather Reisman is announcing a new Heather's Pick for April: Dark Money by Jane Mayer.

A must-read for fans of political and financial exposés, Dark Money by Jane Mayer begs a series of difficult questions: Why is America living in an age of profound economic inequality? Why, despite the desperate need to address climate change, have even modest environmental efforts been defeated again and again? Why have protections for employees been decimated? Why do hedge-fund billionaires pay a far lower tax rate than middle-class workers?

As Jane Mayer shows in this powerful, meticulously reported history, a network of exceedingly wealthy people with extreme libertarian views bankrolled a systematic, step-by-step plan to fundamentally alter the American political system.  To create this powerful and provocative book, Jane Mayer spent five years conducting hundreds of interviews while scouring public records, private papers, and court proceedings. The result, Dark Money, is a book that needs to be read by anyone who cares about the future of American democracy.

INDIGO'S STAFF PICKS OF THE MONTH

Indigo's Staff Picks program is the perfect place to start looking for your next favourite book. Each month we choose the book that Indigo employees at home office and in stores love the most, and what we think our customers will love. Click here to learn more about Indigo's Staff Pick of the Month program.

April's Staff Pick of the Month is The Nest by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney.

This wickedly smart, funny and deeply felt debut novel about four adult siblings and the fate of their long depended-upon family inheritance will keep readers captivated until the very last page.

On a wintry afternoon in New York City, Melody, Beatrice and Jack Plumb gather to confront their charismatic and reckless older brother, Leo, who has just been released from rehab. Leo's bad behavior before entering rehab, culminating in a car crash while under the influence, a nineteen-year-old waitress beside him, has left the Plumbs' joint trust fund "The Nest," as they've taken to calling it, endangered. All four siblings, at very different places in their lives, believe that this money will solve a host of self-inflicted problems and their consequences.

Tender, funny and deftly written, The Nest explores what money does to relationships, what happens to our ambitions over the course of our lives, and the fraught but unbreakable ties we have with our families.
