Indie Next

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.

    I didn’t know that my mention got in the Indiebound Notables until today (2/4/09) but I am VERY happy about it. (every once in a while I google myself and this is what I found!)
    I have to say, Japan doesn’t really interest me… at all. I don’t know what made me pick up your book, but it was fabulous. I’ve passed it along to many others who have enjoyed it.

      Sydne, before I went to Japan, I wasn’t really interested in it, either. So your original non-interest makes me feel like I might have done something right with the book. I’m so glad others you’ve been recommending it to have enjoyed it as well. 🙂
