NEW YORK (AP) -- Oprah Winfrey has forgiven Jonathan Franzen.
Nine years after picking Franzen's "The Corrections" for her book club and then canceling his appearance on her show after he expressed ambivalence over her endorsement, Winfrey has chosen his new novel, "Freedom."

Painter tackles this subject in the serious, methodical and academic fashion expected of a Princeton University professor who also happens to be African-American. Weighing-in at 500+ pages, her informative, encyclopedic opus ponders whether White people even belong to a separate race: the author's examination of the history of Western Civilization from ancient Greece and Rome to the present reveals the emergence of "Whiteness" to be a relatively-recent phenomenon, having caught hold in the 1700s in Germanic propaganda
