Indigo CEO and Chief Booklover Heather Reisman announces two new Heather's Picks for January: Trumpocracy: The Corruption of the American Republic by David Frum and Tears of Salt: A Doctor's Story by Pietro Bartolo.

Trumpocracy: The Corruption of the American Republic
Bestselling author, former White House speechwriter and Atlantic columnist and media commentator David Frum explains why President Trump has undermined our most important institutions in ways even the most critical media has missed, in this thoughtful and hard-hitting book that is a warning for democracy and America's future.

Tears of Salt: A Doctor's Story:
Situated more than one hundred miles off Italy's southern coast, the rocky island of Lampedusa has hit world headlines in recent years as the first port of call for hundreds of thousands of African and Middle Eastern refugees fleeing civil war and terrorism and hoping to make a new life in Europe. Dr. Pietro Bartolo, who runs the lone medical clinic on the island, has been caring for many of them—both the living and the dead—for a quarter century.

Tears of Salt is Dr. Bartolo's moving account of his life and work set against one of the signal crises of our time. With quiet dignity and an unshakable moral center, he tells unforgettable tales of pain and hope, stories of those who didn't make it and those who did. Tears of Salt is a lasting work of literature and an intimate portrait of a remarkable man whose inspiring message rings clear: "We can't and we won't be governed by our fears."



Indigo's Staff Picks program is the perfect place to start looking for your next favourite book. Each month, we choose the book that Indigo employees at home office and in stores love the most, and what we think our customers will love. Click here to learn more about Indigo's Staff Pick of the Month program. The January Staff Picks of the Month are The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn and You Do You by Sarah Knight.

Fiction Staff Pick of the Month: The Woman in the Window
Anna Fox lives alone—a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine, watching old movies, recalling happier times and spying on her neighbors. Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, mother and their teenaged son— the perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn't, her world begins to crumble—and its shocking secrets are laid bare. For readers of Gillian Flynn and Tana French comes one of the decade's most anticipated debuts, to be published in thirty-six languages around the world and already in development as a major film from Fox: a twisty, powerful thriller about an agoraphobic woman who believes she witnessed a crime in a neighboring house.

Non-Fiction Staff Pick of the Month: You Do You
In the down-to-earth, warmly irreverent tone that has become her trademark, Sarah Knight helps readers find the conviction that it's not just okay to be who you are and want what you want, but that it's great. In the bestselling tradition of Shonda Rhimes' Year of Yes and Jen Sincero's You Are a Badass, You Do You is an unconventional yet universal guide to getting down with your bad self.


i At participating locations. Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Event materials may be limited and events are subject to cancellation or change without notice.
