After making their debuts in late August, the newest titles from Mary Oliver and Seamus Heaney have remained at or near the top of the contemporary best seller list, and this week is no different, with Swan at number 1 and Human Chain at number 2. National Book Award nominee One with Others by CD Wright jumps twelve spots to number 13, just behind Poetry magazine editor Christian Wiman’s latest collection, Every Riven Thing, which makes its debut at number 12 this week. Also making its debut is Melissa Kwansy’s Reading Novalis in Montana, which was one of the Huffington Post’s best books of 2009 and is currently tied at number 30 on the list.
