Rush Limbaugh, Walter Kirn, & Chris Pavone Debut on the Indie Bestseller List

BloodWillOut_Cover.inddWe’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending March 16, 2014–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.

(Debuted at #4 in Hardcover Nonfiction) Blood Will Out by Walter Kirn: “In the summer of 1998, Walter Kirn—then an aspiring novelist struggling with impending fatherhood and a dissolving marriage—set out on a peculiar, fateful errand: to personally deliver a crippled hunting dog from his home in Montana to the New York apartment of one Clark Rockefeller, a secretive young banker and art collector who had adopted the dog over the Internet. Thus began a fifteen-year relationship that drew Kirn deep into the fun-house world of an outlandish, eccentric son of privilege who ultimately would be unmasked as a brazen serial impostor, child kidnapper, and brutal murderer.” (March 2014)

(Debuted at #8 in Children’s Interest) Rush Revere & the First Patriots by Rush Limbaugh: “Rush Revere rides again! Saddle up with Rush Limbaugh’s really good pal for a new time-travel adventure.” (March 2014)

(Debuted at #9 in Hardcover Fiction) The Accident by Chris Pavone: “Over the course of one long, desperate, increasingly perilous day, these lives collide as the book begins its dangerous march toward publication, toward saving or ruining careers and companies, placing everything at risk—and everyone in mortal peril. The rich cast of characters—in publishing and film, politics and espionage—are all forced to confront the consequences of their ambitions, the schisms between their ideal selves and the people they actually became.” (March 2014)
