The newly released unauthorised biography of Oprah Winfrey by Kitty Kelley made the number five spot following its release on April 13. Kelley is the author of previous best-selling biographies about Jackie O., Frank Sinatra, and Nancy Reagan - many of which contain unfavorable details and anecdotes and the author's biography of the mogul and US daytime TV star has been much anticipated.
Also new to the bestseller list is Karl Marlantes's Matterhorn: A Novel of the Vietnam War, which was published on March 23. Marlantes, a Vietnam veteran, is the best-selling author of Black Hawk Down, among other titles. Amazon named Matterhorn among the best books to be released in March and called it a "brilliant war epic," while Publishers Weekly called it a "grand, distinctive accomplishment."
