I think that's the best introduction to Wolfe for new readers. Otherwise I'd have to say 5HC. I love PEACE, but it bends conventional narrative even more radically than does 5HC, and unless the bookclub likes "experimental" works or is really open-minded, I suspect they wouldn't like it. And I wouldn't recommend PANDORA to anyone.
