Week on week sales rise for Anna Burns’ Milkman following its Man Booker triumph

ANNA BURNS WAS ONE OF SIX NEW ENTRIES IN THE TOP 10, CHARTING NINTH


in 2003, the series’ rise has been dramatic. Lamentation, the sixth title and the first hardback in the series to outsell its paperback, shiſted 155,015 copies total—a 5,179% improvement on Dissolution. And Tombland, aſter three days on sale, has already notched up 30% of Lamentation’s hardback volume. It has also scored Sansom his first overall number one. Lamentation spent eight weeks in the


Original Fiction top spot across autumn 2014, but was denied the category chart’s Christmas-week pole at the eleventh hour by Jessie Burton’s The Miniaturist. Perhaps 2018 could be Sansom’s year—however, Jack Reacher lurks on the horizon, with Child’s Past Tense released in hardback in early November. Anna Burns’ Milkman has achieved a beter post-Man Booker win volume than the 2017


winner, George Saunders’ Lincoln in the Bardo—but then again, what didn’t? With 9,466 copies sold, Burns’ Northern Ireland-set title jumped 882% in volume week on week, leaping from 354th place to ninth overall.

obert Galbraith’s Lethal White boomer- anged back to the Weekly E-Book Ranking number one, leapfrogging previous top spot


holder Ian Rankin’s In a House of Lies, which fell to sixth place. Te Cuckoo’s Calling, Galbraith’s début, re-entered the top 20—it was last spotted there in September 2017, when the BBC adaptation was first broadcast. Te fourth Cormoran Strike title (which features


a government minister getting blackmailed, problems organising a huge sporting event and a mysterious death... Goblet of Fire, much?) also hurdled Adam Kay’s Tis is Going to Hurt, which racked up a 38th week in the top 20, but slipped to third. Te summer’s blockbuster trio of Tis is Going to Hurt, Gail Honeyman’s Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine and Heather Morris’ Te Tattooist of Auschwitz have scored 26 number ones this year between them, and all three remain in the top five. In the week that Morris’ début scored the overall print number one in paperback, its digital edition charted fourth. Rachel Abbott’s And So It

in the Weekly E-Book Ranking as they used to be, 2018 has seen a few ascend straight to the top of the chart—Cara Hunter’s In the Dark in mid-July and

ENTRY, TRAILING ONLY ROBERT GALBRAITH


Helen Fields’ Perfect Silence in late August. Deborah Harkness is the most ubiquitous author


in the e-book chart, perhaps because her Discovery of Witches series is currently being broadcast on Sky One. Te complete trilogy rose to seventh place, with the second and third titles, Shadow of Night and Te Book of Life, in 13th and 17th respectively. Curiously, A Discovery of Witches itself is the


only title yet to chart—perhaps e-book buyers have burned through the first series on catch-up and have downloaded the second title rather than wait a year to find out what happens next on screen. Tose opting for print have a little more patience, though—the paperback and TV tie-in edition of A Discovery of Witches have shifted over 22,000 copies between them in the last few weeks.
