New York: Booksellers around the country have seen an avalanche of book deals from Cory Booker’s latest novel, “Cory Book,” which has already sold more than half a million copies in print.
The book’s popularity, Booker said, has been driven in part by the fact that the title itself refers to Booker, not a specific caste or caste-related issue.
“I think it’s very important that people be able to read it and feel confident that they are reading a book that is accurate and authentic and not some fiction that is trying to make a political point,” Booker said Thursday.
“And to me that’s what it’s about, it’s not trying to do that.
Booker, who is the first black U.S. senator and is a former chairman of the NAACP, said he and his family are “really happy to have a platform to share my experience of the struggles of our ancestors, and how they overcame those struggles.” “
There’s no political point in this book, but there’s a social point, and that’s really what it is.”
Booker, who is the first black U.S. senator and is a former chairman of the NAACP, said he and his family are “really happy to have a platform to share my experience of the struggles of our ancestors, and how they overcame those struggles.”
Booker said the title has also helped him build an audience, with more than 20 million people having read the book through a public reading at the New York Public Library.
“It’s a little bit like a ‘I can’t believe you’re saying this to me’ moment,” he said.
“We were thrilled to have the book in print, but we were also excited about it being read.
We didn’t have a chance to actually hear any of the questions, but I can tell you it was a lot of fun to have that conversation.”
The book comes at a time of racial tension in the U.s., as some see the term “white privilege” and others say the book is a reflection of what Booker has experienced.
“Cathy [Mills], who I spoke to at the book signing, said, ‘You know what?
I can’t see that in the title, I can see that it’s something that’s real and something that we’re all trying to fight for,'” Booker said.
The title “Cories Book” was inspired by Booker’s own experiences as a child in a working-class family in Brooklyn.
“If we didn’t all be fighting for a certain thing, we wouldn’t have this book,” Booker explained.
“So, that was a real way that I could express myself as an African American woman.”
“Cities on Fire” is scheduled to be released in the spring of 2019.
