Oprah Sets Out on The Road

Once again proving that I have no business making predictions about top-secret book projects, Oprah Winfrey has tapped Cormac McCarthy for the book club, in the form of a brand-new paperback edition of his post-apocalyptic (none dare call it science fiction) novel, The Road. “A paperback was not planned until September,” notes the Associated Press, “but Vintage Books, understandably, is publishing one now.” The first printing of the paperback will be 950,000 copies.

Oprah will also coax the notoriously reclusive author out of hiding. “He is an intensely private author, who doesn’t do tours or give blurbs, and doesn’t usually do things like go on Oprah, but he will be doing his first-ever TV interview with me,” she told her audience.
