The (Unofficial) Political Bestsellers — Oct. 2, 2011
Something rather astonishing has happened to the political list this weekend — not only is there an ideal number of 10 books on the list, but every last one is actually a current title, a book published within the last month. For countless weeks, the roundup has been a mix of up-to-the-minute and some rather old (at times really old) books. A sign of the new publishing season, no doubt.
And, there’s a prevalence of governors reflected below, from (former) Gov. Granholm of Michigan to (current) Gov. Daniels of Indiana, both with prescriptions for America’s ills, to (not quite one term and former) Gov. Sarah Palin, examined in a somewhat controversial book by journalist Joe McGinniss.
