The New Yorker’s editor-at-large Kristin G. Gillibrad, who has been at the helm of the magazine for more than a decade, is now the bestselling author in the country, according to the publisher, HarperCollins.
The publisher announced Thursday that the best-selling book in the nation’s most-watched weekly magazine was published last month by HarperCollins with a print run of more than 1 million copies.
The book, titled Rape Culture: How Men, Women, and Rape Culture Are Undermining Our Communities, by Gillibrard, features interviews with more than 100 prominent women and men from across the political spectrum, as well as a number of prominent activists and academics.
The book was a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize in journalism.
The award-winning author has been a frequent critic of sexual assault in the workplace, with her most recent book, a memoir, Rolling Stone: Surviving the Culture of Violence, which came out in April, criticizing the cover of the December 2016 issue of the popular magazine.
In recent years, Gillibrady has also made waves for the magazine’s coverage of sexual misconduct and assault in high places, and for her refusal to recant her previous statement that the accused was not guilty of the rape charges against him.
