Bestseller in some strange (but acceptable) categories
For Monks Only has done some weird things. It has dropped to below 1,000,000 in sales rank and then also been on the bestseller lists three or four times now. It has been as high as #2 on the bestseller list for Travel / USA / Brooklyn. The funny thing is the main character, "you", starts the story in Brooklyn and then travels to Southeast Asia where the remainder of the long short story (the novelette) takes place. What does it take to get to be ranked high in fiction? in literature? I think it's a fuckload of sales. Anyway, I haven't been there yet.
