Bestselling “Spies”

As we predicted, Spies of Warsaw landed on bestseller lists this week:

NYT Fiction – #15

Washington Post Fiction — #5

SF Chronicle Fiction — #1

USA Today — #74

Some libraries show it still on order (pub date was last Tuesday), with holds building. Time to get it on the shelves!

Furst is considered one of the best espionage authors alive today, but his books have only recently been bestsellers (his most recent, from ’06, Foreign Correspondent was on the lower rungs of the Times list for a few weeks and higher on West Coast lists).

The book has been reviewed widely, (including a rave from NYT daily reviewer, Janet Maslin). The Times also featured an interview with Furst by Charles McGrath on Saturday.

For an interesting take on the recent revival of espionage fiction, see Sara Weinman’s “The Spies Came Out of the Cold” from the Barnes and Noble Review.
