For only the second time in 35 weeks, The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt has been displaced in the number one position on the Los Angeles Times Hardcover Fiction Bestseller List as The Silkworm (A Comoran Strike Novel) by Robert Galbraith (a.k.a J.K. Rowling) is the new #1. On the Nonfiction List, Hard Choices by Hillary Rodham Clinton remains in the top spot for the second week.
New to the Fiction List is Top Secret Twenty-One, the latest Stephanie Plum mystery by Janet Evanovich; The Last Magazine, the posthumous first novel by journalist Michael Hastings; and All Fall Down by Jennifer Weiner. With the recent death of Los Angeles' own Louie Zamperini, Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand is at #3 on the Hardcover Nonfiction List, 132 weeks after being released.
