Here’s what we do know about the next selection in Oprah Winfrey‘s book club: It’s a Picador paperback, and it’s a work of fiction. So I poked through the backlist—or at least the first few pages, since there’s nearly 500 works of fiction in Picador’s inventory, and here’s some likely candidates, along with some wishful thinking on my part. (But which book falls into which category isn’t always as obvious as you imagine!)

And though it’s an extreme long shot, I can’t resist pointing out that The Corrections is a Picador title—anyone want to make odds on whether Jonathan Franzen is ready to kiss and make up on national TV?
