NEW YORK (AP) - The death of David Carr has made his memoir about addiction one of the fastest-selling books on Amazon.com.

Carr’s “The Night of the Gun: A Reporter Investigates the Darkest Story of His Life. His Own.” was No. 26 on Amazon and out of stock Friday afternoon. A day ago, it was No. 53,570.

Carr was The New York Times’ widely read and respected media columnist. He collapsed and died Thursday at age 58.

“The Night of the Gun” was first published in 2008. It traces Carr’s rise from cocaine addict to single dad raising twin girls to sobered-up Times columnist.
