Remember that tell-all book about A-Rod? Just a month after making headlines with its allegations that the New York Yankees star likely used steroids as far back as high school, Selena Roberts’ “A-Rod: The Many Lives of Alex Rodriguez” has vanished from best seller lists.
Published in early May by HarperCollins with an announced first printing of 150,000, “A-Rod” has sold just 16,000 copies so far, according to Nielsen BookScan, which tracks about 75 percent of industry sales. The book sold 11,000 in its first week, then quickly faded.
Best part is a blurb from the article noting that James Frey’s “A Million Little Pieces” is currently outselling Roberts’ book. That means that Roberts isn’t even heading the lists in the lucrative Unsubstantiated Baloney genre.
Tough break, kid.
