Abstract

Following the publication of Jonathan Franzen's The Corrections in September 2001, the novel was selected by Oprah's Book Club. Afterwards,  Franzen commented  negatively on the club's  previ­ ous selections, upon which the invitation was withdrawn. The objective of this paper is to investigate the reasons behind Franzen's negative response, the proceeding  media fall-out and the effects of the Winfrey - Franzen dispute.
