This is an utterly extraordinary feat for a debut – described in the New York Times as ‘an endearing debut… [with] real emotional heft’ – on only the second week of publication. The Maid also hit No.1 in Canadian Fiction and in Original Fiction on the Toronto Star bestseller lists.
This comes at the end of a week which saw Nita Prose featuring on Good Morning America as the January Book Club Pick. Catch up on Nita’s inspiring interview here:
The Maid was published in the UK this week, and has been translated into 31 languages.
This incredible debut, which Good Morning America labelled a ‘hopeful murder mystery’, is destined for the big screen too, with film rights having been optioned by Universal Pictures, and oscar-nominated Florence Pugh set to star as the leading lady, Molly the maid.
