It’s been a week since Prince Harry stunned the world with some personal stories collected in his very own memoir. “Spare” quickly gained momentum and has sold over 3 million copies within a week – fascinating indeed. The book has already been translated into 15 languages with another 10 additional languages expected to come out soon.
“Penguin Random House announced Thursday that Prince Harry’s headline-making memoir sold 1.6 million copies in the U.S. alone. It’s a number comparable to first week sales for blockbusters such as former President Barack Obama’s ‘A Promised Land’ and former first lady Michelle Obama’s ‘Becoming,’ which has sold more than 17 million copies since coming out in 2018,” AP News reported. They also mentioned that “Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, worked on his book with American novelist J.R. Moehringer, who also helped write Andre Agassi’s acclaimed ‘Open’ and is the author of ‘The Tender Bar,’ a memoir adapted by George Clooney into a movie starring Ben Affleck.”
