Coates’ book, published in 2015, is structured as an open letter to his adolescent son about what to expect as a Black person living in the United States. “Between the World and Me” was a bestseller that won the National Book Award and received new attention this summer when the Black Lives Matter protests led to a surge in sales for books about race and racism.

I pretty much write for myself and the only people I think about are my wife and my editor,” says Coates, whose novel is her latest book club pick. “I was really happy (about the news from Winfrey).
