Winner Of The Week

Michael Crichton

Five Patients, hit the best-seller list 24 years after initial publication, presumably due to his new hit hospital TV series, ER.

Losers of the Week The Brando Books After a lot of hoopla, neither the autobiography Brando: Songs My Mother Taught Me nor Peter Manso's Brando bio has been a huge seller. A double ouch for Random House, which paid massive Marlon a reported $6 million.
