'Hunchback of Notre-Dame' Tops Bestseller Lists After Fire

Victor Hugo's The Hunchback of Notre-Dame shot to the top of the Amazon bestseller list Tuesday as firefighters damped down the embers of the blaze that ravaged the ancient cathedral. The original French version of the Gothic novel, Notre-Dame de Paris, became the fastest selling book in France after it came out in 1931 and is also a number one bestseller worldwide in English in two sub-categories of historical fiction.
