Franzen and Oprah: Together at Last?

By posted at 11:28 am on September 16, 2010 1

If Moby Lives is right, the literary beef that erupted when Oprah selected Jonathan Franzen’s The Corrections for her book club and he rejected the (in his mind, dubious) honor is about to get a curious denouement. Speculation is that Freedom is poised to become another Oprah selection. And your author suspects that Franzen will be more welcoming this time around. (Oprah sticker haters should probably buy their copies of Freedom now, just to be safe.) Update: The AP confirms and so it begins again.

    Anybody want to start a pool estimating how long till Franzen says something that provokes Oprah to rescend her invite?
