Bestseller Watch — “Spies of Warsaw”

Alan Furst is often referred to as one of the best espionage writers alive. His tenth book received a rave from Janet Maslin in the New York Times last week (Dan Cryer in the San Francisco Chronicle was less enthusiastic, however ).

His most recent title, Foreign Correspondent, spent a few weeks at the bottom of the NYT bestseller list (it was higher on the independent bookseller’s and West Coast lists). It’s currently at #54 on Amazon, which means it is likely to begin appearing on print lists this week. Libraries show it still on order and some have heavy reserves to copy ratios.

Furst began his book tour this week. Stops are scheduled in Corte Madera, CA; Boulder, CO; Aurora, CO; Winetka, IL; Milwaukee, WI; Houston, TX; Coral Gables, FL; Raleigh, NC; New York City; Cambridge, MA and Fairfield, CT.
