SpyWe’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending August 03, 2014–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.

(Debuted at #1 in Hardcover Nonfiction) A Spy Among Friends by Ben Macintyre: “Kim Philby was the greatest spy in history, a brilliant and charming man who rose to head Britain’s counterintelligence against the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War—while he was secretly working for the enemy. And nobody thought he knew Philby like Nicholas Elliott, Philby’s best friend and fellow officer in MI6.” (July 2014)

(Debuted at #6 in Hardcover Fiction) Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty: “A murder…a tragic accident…or just parents behaving badly?  What’s indisputable is that someone is dead. But who did what?” (July 2014)

(Debuted at #7 in Hardcover Fiction) Lucky Us by Amy Bloom: “Disappointed by their families, Iris, the hopeful star and Eva the sidekick, journey through 1940s America in search of fame and fortune. Iris’s ambitions take the pair across the America of Reinvention in a stolen station wagon, from small-town Ohio to an unexpected and sensuous Hollywood, and to the jazz clubs and golden mansions of Long Island. With their friends in high and low places, Iris and Eva stumble and shine though a landscape of big dreams, scandals, betrayals, and war.” (July 2014)
