She’s already developing a TV series based on this collection of short stories.
It’s that time again: Reese Witherspoon has announced her pick for May for her book club with Hello Sunshine. This month, Reese’s Book Club and its 477,000 followers will be reading Curtis Sittenfeld’s new collection of stories, titled You Think It, I’ll Say It.
This latest work (available on Amazon starting at $14 for the e-book) from the author of New York Times bestseller Eligible and Prep is her first collection of short fiction. It consists of 10 stories exploring class, relationships, and gender roles in the modern United States starring an assortment of remarkable characters, and Witherspoon’s production company Hello Sunshine has already signed on to develop a TV show based off the collection.
“Every single character in this book is complex, beautifully flawed and so multi-faceted—and all so interesting to unpack,” Witherspoon said of the book in her Instagram post announcing the pick. “You won’t want these short stories to end!”
You Think It, I’ll Say It follows Witherspoon’s April pick, heart-wrenching memoir Happiness: the Crooked Little Road to Semi-Ever After by Heather Harpham. (March’s pick was Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jaswal.) Witherspoon made the announcement Thursday, after hinting at the pick on Instagram the day before. The television series inspired by the stories was announced in January, so Witherspoon has clearly been a fan of Sittenfeld’s for a while—and now she can talk through her thoughts on the book with the thousands of members of the book club.
