At long last it’s happened: Someone has knocked Robert James Waller off his perch atop the fiction list. It’s Michael Crichton, whose sizzling new novel of corporate intrigue and sexual harassment has already been snapped up for the movies by Warner Bros. (Rumor has it that Michael Douglas and Geena Davis will star.) You have to say this for Crichton: Unlike lots of best-selling authors, he never writes the same book twice.
