Two "Life After Life" Novels Share April Indie Next No. 1 Honors
The American Booksellers Association's Indie Next List for April will name two books with the same title as the shared No. 1 pick: LIFE AFTER LIFE -- both Kate Atkinson's novel, publishing April 2 from Reagan Arthur Books, and Jill McCorkle's novel of the same name, coming from Algonquin on March 26.
The ABA says this is the first time two books have shared the No. 1 slot (let alone two books with the same title). "The reason is that they had an equal amount of support from the indie booksellers."
