Ian Mc Ewan is the sole Booker winner on the list, and Sebastian Faulks and Louis de Bernières are the only other representatives of the literary novel. The few “celebrities” include Jeremy Clarkson, Katie Price (Jordan), Carol Vorderman and Jamie Oliver (who was second in earnings to Rowling, ahead of Dan Brown, with Jacqueline Wilson fourth). As The Bookseller has explained, some 100,000 titles are published every year, but these authors account for £1 in every £6 spent on books and a fifth of revenue.
