SERVING AN ACE

Days of Grace-Arthur Ashe's affecting account of life on the court and off- leapt up the nonfiction list this last week, moving seven notches to No. 3. On the fiction side, The Bridges of Madison County continues to hold firm at the No. 1 spot, despite a heavy assault by Scott Turow (whose Pleading Guilty now has over 1 million copies in print). Just out of sight lurk a few surprises, including Barbara Kingsolver's Pigs in Heaven at No. 12. The top six slots on the paperback list go to two men, Michael Crichton and John Grisham, with three books apiece. FICTION WEEKS ON LIST
