Oprah's Latest Book Club Pick
The publisher's synopsis contains this overview - "From the National Book Award-winning author of The Corrections comes a darkly comedic novel about family. Franzen's intensely realized characters struggle to learn how to live in an ever-confusing world--one with the temptations and burdens of liberty, the thrills of teenage lust, the shaken compromises of middle age, the wages of suburban sprawl, and the heavy weight of empire."
Shortly after announcing the book, Oprah squashed a nasty rumor. She will not end her book club. Even though this is the last season of her talk show, the book club will continue. Have no fear, readers! Oprah will not leave us to fend for ourselves. We can still count on her to recommend great books for our enjoyment. I am looking forward to this one.
