That Oprah is a great reader. I finally got around to reading The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd, Oprah’s most recent book selection, and am so glad I did. I classify this book as fine literature, many steps above everyday fiction.
The Invention of Wings
Think of this book as a cross between Roots and Gone With the Wind. Quotes I loved:
“Aunt-Sister said Charleston had a case of the grandeurs. Up till I was eight or so, I thought the grandeurs was a shitting sickness.”
“She couldn’t get free and she couldn’t pop missus on the back of her head with a cane, but she could take her silk. You do your rebellions any way you can.”
“Ain’t nobody can write down in a book what you worth.”
“She was a well-meaning woman afflicted with an incurable primness.”
“I’d chosen the regret I could live with best, that’s all.”
