Oprah and "The Road"

Oprah has announced the new selection for her book club: Cormac McCarthy's The Road.

An unusual yet inspired choice: it's the best book I read last year.

Linda L. Richards has a nice summary of the news at January Magazine, including clips from several reviews and mention of what Oprah hopes readers will get from the novel.

Richards also notes the famously media-shy McCarthy will sit for an interview with Oprah.
