Fire and Fury: Delay for Kiwis wanting tell-all Trump bookby RNZ
Help us find and write the stories Kiwis need to read
Kiwis wanting to read about how senior officials thought Donald Trump was an "idiot" will have to wait.
Eager readers are already able to buy the e-book version of Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, but bookstores won't have physical copies until later in the week.
The book suggests that even the president's closest advisors question his fitness for office.
Fire and Fury went on sale early on Friday, days ahead of its scheduled US release, amid the president lawyers' attempts to block its publication. It has become an instant best-seller.
The book describes a Trump team shocked by their own win on election night, White House staffers saying Mr Trump's "mental powers were slipping", and senior administration officials calling Mr Trump an "idiot".
Unity Books in Wellington said they had had lots of pre-orders and requests for the book and they're expecting a big delivery.
But there hasn't been quite as much interest at Time Out Bookstore in Auckland, with just a handful of enquiries, mostly from Americans.
However, the store also has a large number of the books on order.
The official publication date for Fire and Fury is 9 January and books are expected in shops not long after that.
