The Life List of Adrian Mandrick, a novel by Chris White, professor of English at DePauw University, is among "The Most Anticipated Fiction Books of 2018" listed by the Chicago Review of Books. White's work is scheduled to be released April 17 by Touchstone.

"Described as H Is for Hawk meets Grief Is the Thing with Feathers, this poignant novel is about a pill-popping anesthesiologist and avid birder who embarks on a quest to find one of the world’s rarest species," writes Rabeea Saleem. She calls the book, "An immensely affecting observation of human nature and foibles."
