26.Fiction, nonfiction books to gift
The first Christmas gift I can remember receiving was a book. I was 4 years old, still unable to read, but when Santa left me a copy of "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" by Chicago's own L. Frank Baum, I felt certain that it was the greatest gift any boy had ever been given. I liked holding the...

27.YA books to place under the Christmas tree
This past year, adults who enjoy reading young adult novels were told to grow up. Like Goldilocks sinking into Mama Bear's chair, cultural critics such as A.O. Scott of The New York Times, Ruth Graham of Slate and Christopher Beha of The New Yorker declared such books too soft. Why, they...

28.PEN auction features authors' notes on first editions
Collectors of first editions ordinarily would steer clear of books marked up and full of scribbled notes — but it depends who's doing the scribbling. For the 75 books on auction at the PEN American Center's "First Editions/Second Thoughts," they may be willing to make an exception.

29.The best suspense novels to give as gifts
"Gone Girl" was our notice: The adults are in charge again. No more vampires, no more zombies, no more hunger games. As the wars and financial panics of the last decade have dwindled into memory, so too have the grim apocalyptic novels they inspired, as well as the popular fantasies into...

31.Editor's choice: 'The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2014'
Despite my best efforts, I can't keep track of everything I want to read. Aside from the obvious weekly and monthly literary magazines and journals, there are others I see inconsistently, but approach with the fervor of a high school sweetheart — like The Baffler or ZYZZYVA.

32.The outsized influence of Margaret Anderson's Little Review
To open, an analogy: Margaret Anderson and The Little Review are to independent publishing what Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground are to music.

33.Walter Isaacson on 'The Innovators'
We think of innovators in general, and the giants of the Digital Age in particular, as lone geniuses. But just as the heralded designs attributed to visionary architects such as Frank Gehry and Renzo Piano are actually group efforts produced by multidisciplinary teams, the most creative...

34.Review: 'The Stranger' by Chuck Todd
The march of events during Barack Obama's presidency has been a lot like that scene in "Dude, Where's My Car?" when Ashton Kutcher orders garlic chicken at a drive-thru window, and the attendant asks, "And then?" White rice. "And then?" And wonton soup. "And then?" And, well, you get the...

35.Ha Jin on 'A Map of Betrayal'
With one foot in China and the other in the United States, Ha Jin is the quintessential Chinese-American writer. As a teenager, he served in the People's Liberation Army during the Cultural Revolution, but later immigrated to the United States — where he was already in graduate school...

36.Editor's choice: 'The Liar's Wife'
"Heat was a presence, a companion, but not, as in daytime, an oppressor." It's a summer evening, and a yellow Frito-Lay delivery truck across the street looks all wrong parked on this suburban Connecticut street.

37.Review: 'Yes Please' by Amy Poehler
I wrote this review for Amy Poehler's "Yes Please" on the Red Line to my cubicle job in the South Loop. I wrote it on a plane to a conference in Nashville, Tenn. I wrote it in the car, waiting for my 6-year-old son to finish school. I kept trying to find the right angle: One draft centered on...

38.Review: 'Possibilities' by Herbie Hancock
You don't have to be a jazz aficionado to be acquainted with Herbie Hancock, a protean musician who has ventured far afield from his jazz and classical roots to become something of an icon of American culture.

39.Tribune literary prize winners share love of story
Before rocker and author Patti Smith could read, she so marveled at books and their intricate markings — a secret language known only to adults — that she put a tome under her pillow at night and hoped to dream whatever mystery lay between its covers.

40.Review: 'As You Wish' by Cary Elwes
Inconceivable! One of the most beloved films of modern times was a resounding flop at the box office.

41.Review: 'Let Me Be Frank With You' by Richard Ford
In Richard Ford's 1986 novel, "The Sportswriter," the main character, Frank Bascombe, is 38, wealthy and recently divorced. His young son has died. He is exiting a period of what he calls "dreaminess" and reflecting on life.

42.Jason Schwartzman on 'Listen Up Philip'
Jason Schwartzman has a knack for playing writers on screens large and small. He starred as a struggling one in the Jonathan Ames-created HBO series, "Bored to Death," and plays a successful scribe (and royal jerk) in the new film "Listen Up Philip," co-starring Elisabeth Moss and Jonathan...

43.'Men We Reaped' wins 2014 Heartland Prize for Nonfiction
When the Union Army's famous 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, one of the first African-American units in the Civil War, unsuccessfully assaulted Fort Wagner in South Carolina, escaped slave Harriet Tubman bore witness to the bloodshed from the front lines.

44.Coming on like some heroine
It was 1975 and I was a college freshman when Patti Smith's first album, "Horses," arrived in a Milwaukee record store. I didn't know anything about her music, hadn't heard a note. But that album cover was enough to stop traffic. It intrigued, haunted and, yes, scared me a little: a stark,...

45.'The Maid's Version' wins 2014 Heartland Prize for Fiction
It was the summer of 1965, but Alma still did not have a television, just a radio to announce livestock prices and yield estimates. Born a farm girl, she worked as a maid for half a century. When her grandson Alek arrives for the summer, sent by his father from their river town near St....

46.Jonathan Eig on 'The Birth of the Pill'
Of all the inventions of the 20th century, the birth control pill arguably had the most profound effect on the everyday lives of human beings. By making widely available a convenient and effective form of contraception, the pill gave women control over their reproductive lives and, in the...

47.Review: 'Bad Paper' by Jake Halpern
When a person stops paying his credit card bill, the lending bank has 180 days to collect on what is owed before it is required, by law, to "charge off" the account and file it as a loss. Soon afterward, the bank will sell the rights to collect on the debt to one of the 9,599 debt collection...

50.Review: 'Lila' by Marilynne Robinson
If you loved Marilynne Robinson's novels "Gilead" and "Home," as my wife and many of my friends did, you probably won't be bothering with this review; you'll already have Robinson's "Lila" at the top of your to-read list. Set in the Iowa town of Gilead and again featuring the Rev. John Ames,...
