BEST-SELLERS

THE FAR ‘SIDE’

Dionne Warwick had an infomercial; Sylvia Browne has… Montel Williams. But what’s a little competition among psychic friends? With 145,000 copies in print, Browne’s latest, The Other Side and Back, cracks the nonfiction list in its debut week. Her first-person guide to life after death has readers channeling the buying spirit straight to the cash register. Meanwhile, another voice from the afterlife remains on the charts, despite less-than-lively reviews: Papa Hemingway’s True at First Light.
