A housewife finds success as novelist

LOS ANGELES - Jacquelyn Mitchard pressed the play button on her answering machine and heard a voice saying, "Hi. This is Oprah Winfrey. I read your book, and I'd like to talk to you about it. Would you please call me."

'Deep End' is uncompelling

Ulu Grosbard's The Deep End of the Ocean is a painfully stolid movie that lumbers past emotional issues like a wrestler in a cafeteria line, putting a little of everything on its plate. It provides big roles for Michelle Pfeiffer and Treat Williams but doesn't provide them with the screenplay support they need; the result is awkwardness when characters express emotions the audience doesn't share. (There's no way I can discuss the failure of the movie without revealing details, so if you plan to see it, I'd suggest reading this review later.)

The big screen

THE DEEP END OF THE OCEAN: Michelle Pfeiffer produces and stars in this adaptation of Jacquelyn Mitchard's novel (a former book-of-the-month in Oprah's Book Club). When Ms. Pfeiffer's 3-year-old son is kidnapped, her family is devastated. Things really get interesting when he mysteriously reappears years later as a pre-teen. THE RAGE: CARRIE 2:

Trusting Oprah

Alice Sorrow is normally an avid mystery reader, but lately she has turned to books of a different sort. Sprawling tales of strong women and their life experiences, such as Song of Solomon, The Book of Ruth and The Deep End of the Ocean, have replaced the suspenseful page-turners on her bedside table. Simply because Oprah Winfrey said they were good reads. She is, after all, just like a best friend.
