Best-selling books in Canada for the week ending June 22, 2022 | Books and Authors

There’s a lot of exciting new fiction and non-fiction on this week’s best-seller lists.

Notable new fiction includes “The Nantucket Hotel,” this year’s entry in Elin HilderbrandThe reliably immersive summer series. It makes the list at No. 2. The other big debut this week is “Long Gone Missing,” a new thriller from fiona barton (“The girl on the train”), at No. 9.

Canada’s great non-fiction newcomer is “Rehearsals for Living,” a provocative dialogue on the lives of black and indigenous people by Robyn Maynard (“Policing Black Lives”) and Leanne Betasamosake Simpson (“Noopiming: The Cure for White Ladies”). The book is number 4 on the Canadian list.

And from the Big Ideas Department comes “The End of the World is Just the Beginning: Mapping the Collapse of Globalization,” from the corporate strategist peter zeihan (“The Missing Superpower”). He argues that America’s pre-eminence is over and that in the future the world’s regions will turn in on themselves, responsible for their own services, products and food, all with aging and shrinking populations. It does’nt sound good. It debuts at number 8 on the original non-fiction chart.
