Oprah's Next Pick Revealed

It looks like the speculation about Oprah's next book club pick was accurate. Here's an update from GalleyCat:
Earlier this morning, USA Today ran an item with a brief statement from senior editor Ron Hogan explaining [GalleyCat's] prediction for Oprah Winfrey's next book club pick—we went with Uwem Akpan's short story collection Say You're One of Them based on the price-point data, but we also felt that it was a book that would speak to Oprah's heart. Just a few hours later, Washington Post book eview editor Ron Charles went on Twitter to report that the databases at Ingram, a major book distributor, had inadvertently revealed our hunches were correct: Akpan was Winfrey's pick.
I don't believe Oprah has ever chosen a short story collection before, so this is something new for her. Congratulations to Akpan, who basically just won the literary lottery.

This has been on my radar for a while. Guess I better grab it up so I'll know what everyone is talking about.
