Which has the greatest impact on a book’s sales:

a) Winning the Pulitzer Prize

b) Being handed to the president of the United States by an outspoken, frequently misbehaving foreign leader in front of an international audience?

Elizabeth Strout won the Pulitzer Monday for Olive Kittredge, a set of linked stories set in small-town Maine.

By Tuesday morning, her book was number 24 on Amazon’s list of 25 bestsellers. The prize winners for history, biography and nonfiction were not on the list.

Open Veins of Latin America, the anti-imperialist book handed last weekend to President Obama by Venezuela President Hugo Chavez, was number 3.
