Two New Books, One Title. How'd That Happen? - AARP

Browsing for your next great read you may soon discover two books with the same alluring title: Life After Life. One is by Kate Atkinson (from Reagan Arthur/Little, Brown, in April), the other by Jill McCorkle (Algonquin, this month). What's unusual is not only that books with the same name would be released within two months of each other, but also that both happen to be wonderful. They're set to share top billing as the American Booksellers Association's Indie Next Pick in April.
