Today on Oprah

Today Oprah announced her latest book club selectionsGreat Expectations and A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. Speaking as an old-school English major, I’m glad to see some Victorian classics added to the mix.  

Today was also the day Jonathan Franzen finally appeared on Oprah’s show to talk about his novel Freedom, which was the September book club selection. All is forgiven after the ruckus over Franzen’s reaction to her pick of The Corrections years ago.
