Where the Crawdads Sing, by Delia Owens, a crime thriller that is also a coming-of-age tale, is set to be Ireland’s bestselling book of 2020.
The debut novel, which has sold more than eight million copies worldwide since the actor Reese Witherspoon selected it for her book club, has sold 55,039 copies in Ireland to the end of November, almost 7,000 more than its nearest rival, according to figures released by Nielsen BookScan, which compiles the publishing industry’s official charts.
