27.Edward P. Jones on receiving the Harold Washington Literary Award
Although Edward P. Jones has produced only three books of fiction in his long career — the short story collections "Lost in the City" (1992) and "All Aunt Hagar's Children" (2006) and the novel "The Known World" (2003), which won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award — he...

28.Review: 'The Diver's Clothes Lie Empty' by Vendela Vida
Vendela Vida began building a micro-genre all her own with 2003's "And Now You Can Go," a novel about a young woman struggling to make sense of a brutal encounter with a gun-toting stranger. Vida's next two novels, "Let the Northern Lights Erase Your Name" and "The Lovers," poked further into the...

30.Bob Saget on 'Dirty Daddy'
Because of his role as a single dad on the long-running ABC sitcom "Full House" and his concurrent hosting of "America's Funniest Home Videos," Bob Saget seemed squeaky clean to millions of Americans — especially those who had never seen his sometimes raunchy stand-up routines in Las Vegas or comedy...

Kids who associate books with bedtime yawns will have a raucous awakening at Printers Row Lit Fest.

32.Review: 'Her 37th Year, An Index' by Suzanne Scanlon
On the final two pages of her lyrical and slim — but far from slight — semi-autobiographical novella, "Her 37th Year, An Index," Suzanne Scanlon acknowledges no fewer than 48 "other writers and texts I've copied, (mis)quoted, reformulated, or otherwise invoked in the creation of this book." This...

33.Review: 'Misbehaving' by Richard H. Thaler
Want a good short-hand introduction to (some of) the insights of behavioral economics? Try this one, courtesy of Richard H. Thaler's "Misbehaving: The Making of Behavioral Economic": "(W)e experience life in terms of changes, we feel diminishing sensitivity to both gains and losses, and losses...

34.Me, My Shelf and I: Evangeline McMullen and Michael Nuhn
The focal point of Evangeline McMullen and Michael Nuhn's Lincoln Square apartment is, unquestionably, the floor-to-ceiling custom bookshelves lining one wall of their dining room.

39.Review: 'The First Collection of Criticism by a Living Female Rock Critic' by Jessica Hopper
The show-business saying "everyone's a critic" came into common usage in the middle of the last century, but it's arguably never been more true than now. In our era of Yelp and Amazon, Twitter and Facebook, every literate person with a reliable Internet connection can opine on every commodifiable...

40.Review: 'Seveneves' by Neal Stephenson
No one will accuse Neal Stephenson of being a minimalist. His ambitious "Baroque Cycle" historical series added up to nearly 2,700 pages, and even the overblown 2011 technothriller "Reamde" clocked in at more than 1,000. But when Stephenson finds a theme commensurate with his ambition, all those...

41.Review: 'Mislaid' by Nell Zink
Profiles of Nell Zink, of which there are many, can be as dizzying to read as her books. The one-time author of an animal-themed, post-punk fanzine, she addressed all her fiction for decades solely to one man, Israeli writer Avner Shats. While living in Berlin, she bonded with Jonathan Franzen...

42.My, My Shelf and I: Mare Swallow
"I don't have a very unusual collection," Mare Swallow says of the books in her Andersonville home. "One thing about my husband and me is we're purgers. I only hang on to a book if it really means something, or I'm dying to meet the author and get it signed someday."

43.Review: 'Women of Karantina' by Nael Eltoukhy
Nael Eltoukhy's "Women of Karantina" revels in the violence and treachery committed by its female crime bosses, divided over the 60 years the novel spans. While this is not the Egyptian writer's first novel, its over-the-top rendering of the struggles of Alexandria's crime families has set it apart....

47.'Reflections From Hell': Richard Lewis on how not to live
His neuroses are famous. For decades, we have watched Richard Lewis prowl stages, nervously running his fingers through long strands of gnarly hair as he bemoaned his childhood, his romantic entanglements, his paranoia, his physical maladies, his imagined maladies and his other, uncounted miseries....

48.David McCullough on 'The Wright Brothers'
Few days in history can rival Dec. 17, 1903, in terms of its profound effect on what came afterward.

49.Review: 'Paris, He Said' by Christine Sneed
May-December romances are an enduring trope in popular culture. With Jane Eyre, we swooned over the brooding Mr. Rochester in Charlotte Bronte's 19th century gothic novel, and we were charmed by Megan Calvet, the ingénue who graduated from receptionist to wife of the equally brooding, middle-aged...

50.Novelist Ruth Rendell leaves behind dual legacy
This week has seen many obituaries mourning the death at age 85 of Ruth Rendell, author of the popular Inspector Wexford mysteries. When asked in a  2013 Guardian interview how she'd like to be remembered, Rendell responded brusquely: "I don't really care .... I have no hope of being remembered...
