Reserve Alert: ‘Resilience’

Reserves are piling up on Elizabeth Edwards’s book Resilience, on the heels of her publicity tour. She appeared on Oprah on Thursday and NPR’s All Things Considered last night. An excerpt of the book appears in the new issue of Time. In addition, countless print and online sources have covered the Oprah appearance; on Salon, Rebecca Traister noted that John Edwards, who was also on the show,

…looked about as excited to have Oprah Winfrey arrive at his house to discuss his betrayal of wife and party as anyone would. That is to say, he looked like a man who was about to be dragged backward by his pinky toes through a field of soft horseshit.


The book has been rising on both Amazon (currently at #11) and B& (currently at #4). Libraries show heavy reserving, 10 to 1 in several cases.
