Books by Barry Eisler
NPR stories about Barry Eisler
"Publishing for me is a business, not an ideology," says the bestselling thriller writer. Eisler walked away from a half-million dollar deal offered by a traditional publisher to self-publish — and then teamed up with Amazon. His newest book, The Detachment, was e-released on Amazon in September.
Fiction ranges from Mona Simpson's look at mommies and nannies in Hollywood to Julia Stuart's tale of an English menagerie to Barry Eisler's newest Ben Treven thriller. In nonfiction, there's Siddhartha Mukherjee's Pulitzer Prize-winning "biography of cancer" and a memoir by Bill Clegg.
