Huge congratulations to Gail whose debut novel has become the UK Official Top 50’s number one bestseller in all formats, outselling all other titles across the fiction, non-fiction and children’s markets. This is yet another spectacular achievement for Gail and it is the first fiction title, first paperback and first book written by a woman to reach the number one spot this year. And to top it off, it’s the first debut to top the chart since October 2016.
Eleanor Oliphant also continues to enjoy fantastic sales in the US, where it has sold over 200,000 copies. The audiobook has been particularly popular with US readers thanks to the excellent narration by Cathleen McCarron. A voice coach based at the Royal Shakespeare Company, Cathleen has won awards on both sides of the Atlantic, including a US Audiofile Earphones Award and a Silver Award in the Radio Indies Group’s UK Audio Production Awards 2017. Listen to an exclusive interview with Gail and Cathleen when you purchase the audiobook via Audible here.
It’s also Waterstones Book of the Month and there are some great window displays up and down the country, including this beautiful one at Waterstones Glasgow!
