NEW HEATHER'S PICKS

Indigo CEO and Chief Booklover Heather Reisman is announcing two new Heather's Picks: The Illegal by Lawrence Hill and Nopi by Yotam Ottolenghi and Ramael Scully.

Prolific author Lawrence Hill's new novel The Illegal paints a satirical portrait of an imaged world much like ours, where refugees struggle to survive and belong in societies that do not want them. As Heather Reisman notes, "Lawrence Hill's latest novel shares the story of a young African man, a refugee, who struggles to forge a path for himself in a land of prosperity while avoiding forced deportation. Fast-paced and gripping, the book urges all of us to think about those who are so often—and unforgivingly—forgotten."

Nopi is the official cookbook of the acclaimed London restaurant Nopi, by powerhouse author Yotam Ottolenghi and Nopi head chef Ramael Scully. Pandan leaves meet pomegranate seeds, star anise meets sumac, and miso meets molasses in this collection of 120 new recipes from Yotam Ottolenghi's restaurant. In collaboration with Nopi's head chef Ramael Scully, Yotam's journey from the Middle East to the Far East is one of big and bold flavours, with surprising twists along the way, and a soon-to-be staple in your kitchen.

INDIGO'S STAFF PICKS OF THE MONTH

If you're looking for your next favourite book, Indigo's Staff Picks program is the perfect place to start. Each month we will choose the book that Indigo employees at home office and in the field 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.

We are pleased to announce that November's Staff Pick of the Month title is Everything I Never Told You by bestselling author Celeste Ng. "Lydia is dead. But they don't know this yet." So begins this exquisite novel about a Chinese American family living in 1970s small-town Ohio. Lydia is the favorite child of Marilyn and James Lee, and her parents are determined that she will fulfill the dreams they were unable to pursue. But when Lydia's body is found in the local lake, the delicate balancing act that has been keeping the Lee family together is destroyed, tumbling them into chaos. A profoundly moving story of family, secrets, and longing, Everything I Never Told You is both a gripping page-turner and a sensitive family portrait, uncovering the ways in which mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, and husbands and wives struggle, all their lives, to understand one another.

This book will be loved by fans of Heather's Pick & bestseller The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold, Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi, Adichie, August Spotlight selection The Vacationers by Emma Straub, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz, and The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henriquez.
