Best Sellers: DOG STARS Rising

Making quite a leap, Peter Heller’s apocalyptic novel, The Dog Stars (RH/Knopf; Random House Audio) rises to #3 on the new Indie Hardcover Fiction Bestsellers list (it debuted at #14 last week).

Known for his articles and books about adventure travel, this is Heller’s first work of fiction, the story of two men struggling to survive after a pandemic wipes out 99% of the population. Heller draws on many of his own experiences for the adventure scenes, as he explained last week on NPR’s Fresh Air. As she does so often, Caroline Leavitt (Pictures of You), gets to the heart of the book’s appeal in her review in the San Francisco Chronicle.

The trailer focuses on the emotional side of the book.
