The Bestseller List
Philip Roth hits #10 on the New York Times bestseller list with his new novel Everyman. And the nonfiction bestseller list is finally free of James Frey. Too bad I can't say the same for the nonfiction paperback list, where Frey clings to #10 with A Million Little Pieces. Who is still buying it? And tavis Smiley's anthology The Covenant With Black America continues to sell very well despite being virtually ignored by the Traditional Media. You'd think a collection of essays about the future of African Americans that debuted at #1 would generate SOME media attention. I've seen Smiley on Bill Maher and that's it.
