our review said, and “an urgency that more
polished works often lack.”
Adichie’s Year-to-Date Sales,
2017 compared with 2016
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions, debuts at #13 on our hardcover nonfiction list. It’s Adichie’s best first week to date, in what’s also been a
great year for sales of her earlier books. We’ll be on the lookout for
another boost in a couple of weeks: on March 16, Americanah (2013)
was selected for the inaugural One Book, One New York citywide read.
In Exit West, debuting at #5 in hardcover fiction,
Mohsin Hamid’s takes a somewhat magical-realist look at the refugee crisis. He’s known
for tackling big, timely issues in his novels:
Pakistan’s nuclear tests (Moth Smoke, 2000),
post-9/11 Islamophobia, ( The Reluctant Fundamentalist, 2007), and the economic ascendancy
of Asia (How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia, 2013).
Several new titles on our lists
put the authors’ relationships
with God front and center.
They span four imprints and
a range of categories: self-help, memoir, inspiration,
and spiritual growth.
