Curtis Brown titles dominate 60% of Sunday Times Fiction Paperback chart

In what must be a record breaking week for our agency, Curtis Brown titles occupy 60% of the Sunday Times Fiction Paperback chart, while also holding down positions one-five. In the top spot is the Booker Prize-winning novel The Testaments by Margaret Atwood, followed by Victoria Hislop's Those Who Are Loved at number two. Sitting at number three is the gripping thriller The Guest List by Lucy Foley, with Jojo Moyes' The Giver of Stars holding down another week at number four. John le Carré takes the fifth spot with Agent Running in the Field, and Bernardine Evaristo continues her reign in the chart at number seven, with her Booker Prize-winning novel, Girl, Woman, Other

In the Fiction Hardback chart, Ruth Jones jumps straight in at number three with Us Three, with Moonflower Murders by Anthony Horowitz coming in at number seven.

In Non-Fiction news, Lisa Taddeo sees another week on the Paperback chart with her novel Three Women positioned at number seven. The Hardback chart features Once Upon a Tyne at number two, the memoir from television royalty Ant and Dec, written with Curtis Brown client Andy Milligan. Alastair Campbell enters the chart at number nine with Living Better, an honest and moving account of his lifelong struggle with depression.

Matthew Syed jumps straight into the Children's chart at number five with Dare to Be You, with Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter's The Dinosaur that Pooped a Pirate at number eight. 

That rounds off a spectacular thirteen bestselling Curtis Brown titles this week. Huge congratulations to all our authors, a truly brilliant week in the charts!
