I mentioned in an earlier post that the new book was selected as a notable book for January 2009 on the American Book Seller’s Association’s Indie Next List. From what I’ve gathered, books are nominated for the list by independent booksellers. In the list’s pamphlet for the month, a statement from the bookseller that nominated my book is quoted. Here’s the quote for the bookseller who nominated mine.
The Love We Share Without Knowing
by Christopher Barzak
“Christopher Barzak has woven such a fabulous story of the lives of several characters in Japan that I was hooked right away. This work of interrelated stories is an amazing contemplation on love.”

A Room of One’s Own Feminist Bookstore, by the way, is awesome. I always make a trip there when I’m in Madison, which is also, incidentally, a really awesome town.
