TIGER’S WIFE a Best Seller; TOWNIE Moving Up

What a week for Tea Obreht. Not only has the twenty-five-year-old author received press attention that would make Jonathan Franzen envious, her book The Tiger’s Wife lands at #11 on the 3/27 NYT Print Fiction Hardcover best seller list and at #1 on the independent booksellers’ list.

In Nonfiction, Andre Dubus’s memoir Townie moves up to #4, from #13, on the 3/27 NYT Print Hardcover list after two weeks. Riding waves of media attention, The Social Animal by David Brooks arrives at #1 on the list and Joshua Foer’s Moonwalking with Einstein debuts at #3.

    Please clarify that the non-fiction books you mention at No. 1 and No. 3 on the best seller list are at those positions on the Indie BSL and not NYT, Thanks!

    I should have indicated that those titles are at #1 and #3 on the 3/27/11 NYT Print Hardcover Nonfiction list (I’ve added that info. now). They are ALSO are on the 3/17/11 Indie list in the same positions. Thanks for pointing that out.
