Churchill, Winston: Richard Carvel. v1. 26 Oct 07

This Winston Churchill is not the great British statesman, but instead an American novelist. Richard Carvel is set in the Revolutionary War and includes a description of the battle between the Bon Homme Richard and the Serapis. According to Wikipedia, the novel "was a phenomenon, literally selling by the box-car as many as two million copies in a nation of only seventy-six million, and that book made Churchill rich."

I'll be posting the following ten best selling fiction books in the U.S. for the year 1900:

1. To Have and To Hold, Mary Johnston
2. Red Pottage, Mary Cholmondeley
3. Unleavened Bread, Robert Grant
4. The Reign of Law, James Lane Allen
5. Eben Holden, Irving Bacheller
6. Janice Meredith, Paul Leicester Ford
7. The Redemption of David Corson, Charles Frederic Goss
8. Richard Carvel, Winston Churchill
9. When Knighthood Was in Flower, Charles Major
10. Alice of Old Vincennes, Maurice Thompson

The two were, however, cousins.

Really! That's interesting. I guess the Churchills must have liked the name Wintson.
