Purely Speculation... but


According to the blog-o-sphere-net-tubes-web, Oprah Winfrey will announce her latest book club selection on October 5, and big surprise, the publisher is Vintage. After trolling through the Vintage site and seeing what they have coming up (and taking a poll from all the slunch contributors) we would like to make a wild speculation that the title that she'll choose is (insert ending of Sopranos finale here... just kidding) Fire in the Blood by Irene Nemirosvsky. Why you ask? One word "Auschwitz." We're talking heartbreaking tale here, genocide, and of course a race of people relentlessly persecuted by Mel Gibson.



Can't wait to find out if we're right, or asked to remove this post (same thing).

There's only one problem with this theory: Dead authors make lousy guests.

Well, that and it's a Knopf title that's barely out in hardcover yet.

But it was a good bid for the psychological angle!

I'm going The Emperor's Children...and, Ron, don't forget this is the woman who's promoted Tolstoy and Faulkner, both of whom I know to be quite dead.

Way to back up the editor there, Ladytron.

ps: besides, dead authors can't lie (ahem, Frey).

pps: amazingly, "Fire in the Blood" ended up on the front of USA Today's Life section. Coincidence? I think not.

We should be meticulous and particular in all the advice we give. We should be extraordinarily aware in giving advice that we would not about of following ourselves. Most of all, we ought to avoid giving counsel which we don't mind when it damages those who take us at our word.

To be a noble human being is to have a philanthropic of openness to the in the seventh heaven, an ability to trust undeterminable things beyond your own manage, that can govern you to be shattered in uncommonly outermost circumstances for which you were not to blame.
