C.J. Box in the News

Scaling the mountaintop: C.J. Box continues to sell novels


When C.J. Box’s most recent novel, “The Highway,” debuted at No. 7 on the New York Times bestseller list this week, few were surprised. The Casper-born author’s books have, for the past several years, sold at a comparable clip to novels by Dan Brown, Khaled Hosseini and Robert Galbraith, as J.K. Rowling has taken to calling herself.

“The Highway” is Box’s fifth-consecutive novel to register in the Times’ top 15 and third to make the top 10.

On Monday, he was back at home in Cheyenne following a two-week national book tour, marveling at his place next to Brown and Rowling on the bestseller list.
