  • Child Visiting Ellis Island Sees Where Grandparents Once Toured

Oprah Selects Franzen Again

Despite the author publicly admitting his discomfort at his novel The Corrections being chosen as an Oprah Book Club selection in 2001, Oprah Winfrey has picked Jonathan Franzen's new book, Freedom, as her latest selection. What do you think?

  • "Aww. I love it when off-putting snobs get a second chance."

    Ken Bennett
    Systems Analyst
  • "You'd think she’d go for something fresher, like an erotic vampire romance novel available exclusively through Amazon’s print-on-demand service."

    Shelby Best
    Novelist
  • "I don't know who I feel more embarrassed for: Jonathan Franzen for caving in and being on Oprah's Book Club twice, or me, for not finding time to read a book while Oprah Winfrey manages to read several."
