Oprah "Bullish" On Edgar

Friday, 19 Sep 2008 | 12:25 PM ET

Wall Street has Paulson – Publishers have Oprah!

Today David Wroblewski became one really lucky man.

The AP is reporting Oprah has chosen his debut novel, "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle" as her latest book club pick. Winfrey said in a release, "It's everything you want a book to be… I think this book is right up there with the greatest American novels ever written."

Keep in mind on the book’s cover was Stephen King’s rave, “I don't reread many books because life is too short…I will be re-reading this one."

The book was already a must-read for the summer and now that the good folks at HarperCollins can add those “Oprah” stickers to the jacket – their fall is going to be just grand.
