The best sellers of the week could not be any more different from each other. Bloc Party, by Arlie Russell Hohschild, which is very politically based and just in time for the election. Hohschild has likened her book to the many opposing ideas both sides have and hopes a middle ground can be found between the two. The second book, Spy Light, written by Stephanie Meyers is said to be successful with the same formula she used in the “Twilight” series but adapted for a more adult audience.
- For a supposedly neglected cohort, the white working class sure has made its presence felt lately on the best-seller list.
- In a hopeful sign for your chakra, Hochschild added that she believed America could heal its political divide.
- Stephenie Meyer, whose “Twilight” series made teenage girls everywhere swoon over supernatural beings like vampires and werewolves and Robert Pattinson, returns with her second novel for adults: “The Chemist.”
“Hochschild appeared on “PBS NewsHour” shortly before the election to offer her take on Donald Trump’s appeal.”
