Woohoo. US paperback in stores.

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011

I’m as excited as if the Beaujolais Nouveau just arrived at the stores, and it’s not just because the stock market recovered a hefty chunk of losses today. The real reason? The U.S. paperback of The Hundred-Foot Journey was officially released today.

In celebration, I am reposting The New York Times‘ “editor’s choice” review that ran last year. To read the piece in its entirety, click here.

And I am also posting a link to the interview I gave NPR’s wonderful, The Diane Rehm Show. Click here and hit the “listen” toggle after the page has loaded.

In Britain, The Hundred-Foot Journey can be had at a terrific bargain price, along with an exclusive essay, through the Mail On Sunday‘s book store, where the book is the UK newspaper’s, Book Of The Month for August. For full details, click here.

And, finally, I warmly welcome any and all to join my facebook page where I routinely post updates and answer questions about The Hundred-Foot Journey and my next novel, Buddhaland, Brooklyn. Please do so by clicking here.

The Diane Rehm Show Does Its Magic

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

Top drawer journalist, Steve Roberts, with his wife, Cokie.

At 9.45AM this morning my novel, The Hundred-Foot Journey, was ranked #5,746 in sales among all the books on Amazon.com. At 6.08PM this evening my book officially was among the top 100 books sold by Amazon. Precise tally:

The Hundred-Foot Journey by Richard C. Morais
Amazon Bestsellers Rank: #97 in Books (See Top 100 in Books)
#23 in Books > Literature & Fiction > Literary
#64 in Books > Literature & Fiction > Contemporary

What happened between nine this morning and six this evening? NPR’s Diane Rehm Show, guest-hosted by the consummate pro, Steve Roberts, had me on the air for an hour. It was an extraordinary experience. I was in particular moved by the depth of the questions, not just from the urbane Roberts, but also from fellow Americans all across the country who called in to ask me questions, and to share their own food and family and cultural experiences. My special thanks to the show’s producer, Nancy Robertson, who plucked me for the show and did all the heavy lifting behind the scenes. A huge radio talent.

Here is the podcast of the hour-long show. After the web page loads, hit the “listen” toggle to the left.
