LONDON, December 5, 2010 - The autobiography of Russian meerkat Aleksandr Orlov, the

currently on release in the UK, including: Stephen Fry, Cheryl Cole, Michael
MacIntyre, Lord Sugar, Chris Evans and Keith Richards.
Since it was launched in late October, 'A Simples Life, My
Life & Times' has edged steadily up The Sunday Times' bestseller chart to its
current position at the top spot. It is now on course to become the Christmas
No.1 bestselling book, with bookmakers William Hill having the autobiography
as third favourite at 7/1.

to say that we are absolutely delighted with how people have responded to
Aleksandr's autobiography and how successful A Simples Life has really been."
Aleksandr Orlov said: "Competition was tougher than Putin's
bicep, but the British peoples have demonstrate that they have excellent
taste in readings material. I even beat ex British President Mr Blair. My
papa would be so proud."
He added: " When I original release book I was hope that
royalties would be enough for re-marble roof on Orlov mansion. Well now that
it have reach number one I am please to say that not only will I be able to
re-marble roof but I will have enough left over for make of marble helipad!
What a bonus."
