Jan 4, 2012

2011 was a successful year for ICM authors with a total of 99 titles making it onto the New York Times Best Seller List. ICM has taken out an advertisement in the 4 Jan 2012 edition of the Hollywood Reporter to celebrate this achievement.

The range of ICM titles to make the list was varied, showing the diverse tastes of American readers as well as the eclectic mix of titles represented by ICM. Some of the biggest books of the year, including Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs and Haruki Murakami’s 1Q84 made the list, as did Harry Belafonte’s memoir My Song, Patricia Cornwell’s Red Mist, Ann Patchett’s State of Wonder and Charles Frazier’s beautiful Nightwoods.

Alongside these fiction titles, Francis Fukuyama’s The Origins of the Political Order, Thomas L. Friedman and Michael Mandelbaum’s That Used to be Us and Isabel Wilkerson’s The Warmth of Other Suns also made it to the New York Times Best Seller list. Wilkerson’s National Book Critics Circle Award winning work details the intimate and epic history of the migration of southern African Americans across the USA between the world wars.
