A Bestseller on the Cover of the NYT Book Review

We never thought we’d see a popular title, let alone a best seller, on the cover of the NYT BR. And, we certainly never expected to see the #1 fiction title in that august spot.

But, yes, dear reader, The Lost Symbol is on the cover of the October 11th issue.

And, who better to review it than a popular columnist, known for her ability to prick inflated egos, and who lives in the very city the book is set in; Maureen Dowd?

Does she like it? Well, you don’t call Maureen Dowd in to praise Caesar. Not only does she hilariously pick the book apart, she comes up with the bizarre theory that Brown’s book is a “desperate attempt to ingratiate himself with the Masons…”

She almost convinced us.
