Rachel Maddow, Carl Hiaasen & Jacqueline Winspear Debut on the Indie Bestseller List

We’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending April 05, 2012–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.

(Debuted at #1 in Hardcover Fiction) Elegy for Eddie: A Maisie Dobbs Novel by Jacqueline Winspear: “Maisie Dobbs takes on her most personal case yet, a twisting investigation into the brutal killing of a street peddler that will take her from the working-class neighborhoods of her childhood into London’s highest circles of power.” (March 2012)

(Debuted at #1 in Hardcover Nonfiction) Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power by Rachel Maddow: “Sensible yet provocative, dead serious yet seri­ously funny, Drift will reinvigorate a ‘loud and jangly’ political debate about how, when, and where to apply America’s strength and power–and who gets to make those decisions.” (March 2012)

(Debuted at #1 in Children’s Interest) Chomp by Carl Hiaasen: “Wahoo Cray lives in a zoo. His father is an animal wrangler, so he’s grown up with all manner of gators, snakes, parrots, rats, monkeys, snappers, and more in his backyard. The critters he can handle. His father is the unpredictable one. When his dad takes a job with a reality TV show called ‘Expedition Survival!,’ Wahoo figures he’ll have to do a bit of wrangling himself—to keep his dad from killing Derek Badger, the show’s boneheaded star, before the shoot is over. But the job keeps getting more complicated.” (March 2012)
