Oprah's Book Club Selects 'Hidden Valley Road'

Oprah Winfrey has selected her fourth selection for the new iteration of Oprah’s Book Club in partnership with Apple TV+: 'Hidden Valley Road: Inside the Mind of an American Family' by Robert Kolker (Doubleday).

“This is a riveting true story of an American family that reads like a medical detective journey,” Winfrey said in a statement. “It reveals the shame, denial, shock, confusion, and misunderstanding of mental illness at a time when no one was really sure what schizophrenia was or how to treat it.”

The choice follows the club's decision to drop Kate Elizabeth Russell's My Dark Vanessa (William Morrow) as its fourth pick following the controversy over the selection of Jeanine Cummins's American Dirt (Flatiron).
