NATIONAL BESTSELLER: God Save Texas debuted at #8 on the New York Times bestseller list.
PRAISE: Critics are calling the book “superb” (The New York Times Book Review), “essential reading” (NPR), and “compelling” (The Washington Post).
A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK. God Save Texas has also been named a best book of the year by NPR, The Seattle Times, and Kirkus Reviews.
SALES TRACK: Wright’s backlist titles have netted hundreds of thousands of copies at Vintage.
ACCLAIMED, PULITZER PRIZE-WINNING AUTHOR: Wright’s awards include the Pulitzer Prize and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for The Looming Tower. Going Clear was a finalist for the National Book Award. Wright, a staff writer at The New Yorker, is one of our most respected journalists and is a top request at the Random House Speakers Bureau.
TIMELY: Wright’s exploration of Texas is in direct conversation with the wider political discussion of the day about where the values of Americans lie and where the country is headed.
TV BUZZ: Last fall, Hulu released an original TV series based on The Looming Tower, which—along with our tie-in edition—has helped bring new attention to Wright’s work.
