The issue sold so well that Granta had to reprint more issues a week after publication, making it the fastest selling issue of the magazine ever. Here’s a quote from Unabridged Bookstore staffer Ed Devereux: “Copies of Granta 108 are flying off the shelves…we’ve restocked three times already. It’s even outselling Dan Brown!”
As we reported yesterday, Brown’s bestseller has also seen competition from pre-orders of Sarah Palin‘s memoir. Political troublemaker Martin Eisenstadt has mounted a campaign to get Brown’s book back on top (and drum up publicity for Eisenstadt’s book as well).
