Oprah's book club: Chicagoist has suggestions, I have predictions:

1. American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld. Uppermiddlebrow novel-Lifetime-speculative celebrity fiction mashup about the twilight of the American empire and class and gender. Make it happen.

2. Night of the Gun by David Carr. In which Oprah takes a mulligan on A Million Little Pieces. (NB: One of the best book Web sites I've ever seen.)

My suggestions, FWIW, are Home by Marilynne Robinson or The Children's Hospital by Chris Adrian.

*Killer Mike, "That's Life"
