Back from the Undead

Well, almost.

Oprah’s back, that is; she announced today that the book club will soon be back from the dead. Interestingly, Oprah’s Book Club, Take Two will focus on the much-maligned Dead White Men of the world of “literary classics.” Says Oprah, she “cannot imagine a world where the great works of literature are not read.”

Is it a coincidence that a mere 24 hours earlier, another cultural phenomenon announced the imminent death of its undead realm?

One thought on “Back from the Undead

  1. Oprah also referred to reading as “a gift to herself.” Which prompted my friend Gary to ask “Is there anything which, undertaken by Oprah, could not be construed as a gift to herself?”

    Oprah really is a religion; behold, she giveth herself to herself, and so in the giving gives us all, each, our own selves, which is to say, herself.
