No Way Back Now: Kristi Noem’s Book Now Pulped Fiction, Drops off Amazon Top 500, Kindle Version Used for Just That


Let’s hope Center Street Books — whoever they are — didn’t print up a lot of copies of Kristi Noem’s book.

“No Way Back,” published on Tuesday, is a sales disaster upon delivery. There hasn’t been such an instant collapse of sales since Jann Wenner’s book after he said no Black or female artists were worthy of his time.

Noem’s tome has dropped off the Amazon top 500 hardcovers to #563. Even worse, the Kindle version –which can be instantly downloaded — is down to around number 9,200. Call it digital kindling for real.

Noem boasts in the book about shooting her dog dead because he wouldn’t listen to her. Who could blame him? She claimed she met Korean dictator Kim Jung Un — the publisher had to remove that section because it was a lie. Now French President Emmanuel Macron says he never invited her to meet him — an invitation she says in the book that she declined.

Quel catastrophe!
