Welcome to another week in the charts; once again, we have rankings but no sales figures. Due to the temporary closure of bookshops impacting sales data, Nielsen is currently unable to supply volume figures for titles.

As for last week, we have lots of old favourites making appearances, such as The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris or Adam Kay’s This Is Going To Hurt, currently at the top of the Paperback Non-Fiction Chart, and few new releases. One of the most recent releases is Harlan Coben’s The Boy From the Woods, at no. 9 in Original Fiction; there’s also David Walliams with first and second place in the Children’s Charts with Slime; and finally our featured book for this week, a new book from Costa Award-winner Sebastian Barry, A Thousand Moons. Here’s the blurb:

From the Costa Book of the Year-winning author of Days Without End

Even when you come out of bloodshed and disaster in the end you have got to learn to live.

Winona is a young Lakota orphan adopted by former soldiers Thomas McNulty and John Cole.
Living with Thomas and John on the farm they work in 1870s Tennessee, she is educated and loved, forging a life for herself beyond the violence and dispossession of her past. But the fragile harmony of her unlikely family unit, in the aftermath of the Civil War, is soon threatened by a further traumatic event, one which Winona struggles to confront, let alone understand.

Told in Sebastian Barry’s gorgeous, lyrical prose, A Thousand Moons is a powerful, moving study of one woman’s journey, of her determination to write her own future, and of the enduring human capacity for love.

‘Nobody writes like, nobody takes lyrical risks like, nobody pushes the language, and the heart, and the two together, quite like Sebastian Barry does, so that you come out of whatever he writes like you’ve been away, in another climate.’ ALI SMITH

And now this week’s charts, with the Top 20 followed by the Top 10 in each category.
