Millions of housewives, beset by nightmares

Oprah has gone and done it now... the next selection of Oprah's Book Club is Cormac McCarthy's The Road.

I'm made of pretty stern stuff, but Mr. McCarthy's post-apocalyptic landscape haunted my dreams for months afterwards.

And, of course, this means that in about a month, Cormac McCarthy is going to be interviewed on television.

By Oprah.

I can't wait for my favorite Cormac McCarthy scholar to get back from his skydiving vacation to tell us what this all means.
