BEAUTIFUL FOREVERS Debuts on NYT Best Seller List

According to the recent NYT profile, Katherine Boo, author of Behind the Beautiful Forevers (Random House), a look at life in a Mumbai slum, hates publicity.

She’s had to endure a great deal of it in the last few weeks, from NPR to the Charlie Rose show.

It’s been worth the effort; the book arrived at #9 on Sunday’s NYT Nonfiction Best Seller list, right behind two other books that have received media attention; Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath by Mimi Alford at #7 and Bringing Up Bébé: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting  by Pamela Druckerman at #8.

It is also #1 on the Indie Nonfiction Bestseller list.
