Netherland

The Obama book bump has struck again.

President Obama told The New York Times during a recent interview that he has been reading Joseph O'Neill's Netherland, a highly praised novel about cricket, marriage and living in a post 9/11 world.

The hardcover came out last year and the paperback publisher, Vintage/Anchor Books, citing an Obama-cized double-digit increase in sales, announced Monday it has moved up the paperback release from June 2 to this week (May 7).

The first printing will be 70,000 copies.
