Fired FBI director James Comey's memoir that details his private meetings with US President Donald Trump sold some 600,000 copies in all formats in its first week, its publisher said on Tuesday, the latest in a series of best-selling political books.
Comey's "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership," has so far outpaced Hillary Clinton's campaign memoir "What Happened" and journalist Michael Wolff's behind-the-scenes White House expose "Fire and Fury" in opening week sales, according to industry figures.
Publisher Flatiron Books, a division of privately-owned Macmillan, said it has printed more than 1 million copies of Comey's book, which has made national headlines.
Flatiron did not say whether the first week sales were global or limited to the United States.
