26.Review: 'Get in Trouble' by Kelly Link
Come over here for a moment. Kelly Link would like to show you something. It's in the palm of Kelly Link's hand. Bend down and take a closer look. What is that whispering sound? Squint your eyes and keep looking. What Kelly Link has in the palm of Kelly Link's hand, lucky reader, is you.

28.Editor's choice: 'Reeling Through Life' by Tara Ison
As a reader by calling and temperament (and, yes, profession), I bring full engagement and critical perspective to books, but that vanishes with movies. For movies, I just need to bring lots of tissues (I'm a crier), sit back, absorb and devour peppermint patties. I have thought of this as a...

29.Nick Hornby on 'Funny Girl'
From "Are You Being Served?" and "Keeping Up Appearances" to "Fawlty Towers" and "Absolutely Fabulous," Americans have long appreciated British situation comedy with strong female characters. But the history of the woman-centered Britcom is surprisingly fraught, with origins in the early 1960s,...

30.Ex-aide writes about being Obama's friend, valet and 'surrogate son'
President Barack Obama's former personal assistant has penned a memoir, sidestepping public policy for the most part but dishing on the president's likes and dislikes.

31.Editor's choice: 'Florence Gordon' by Brian Morton
As college students around the country debate whether to continue the tradition and stage a Valentine's Day performance of Eve Ensler's "The Vagina Monologues" or cancel it for good, I found myself wondering: "What would Florence Gordon think?"

32.Reviews: 'The Game of Our Lives' by David Goldblatt, 'The Keeper' by Tim Howard
You'd think Americans would be so overstuffed with televised sports that we wouldn't have room for anything new, but in 2012, NBC bet $250 million on a contrary proposition: The network made a three-year deal to broadcast and stream the soccer games of the English Premier League, letting...

33.Miranda July on 'The First Bad Man'
For most writers, publishing a first novel is a professional milestone unlikely to be matched by anything that came before. Not so with the multifaceted Miranda July, whose debut novel, "The First Bad Man," is just one more highlight of a career that includes two heralded independent films,...

34.Sports books are Triumph for small Chicago publisher
Mitch Rogatz closely monitored the ebb and flow of the World Series in October. He had big money involved but it had nothing to do with betting.

35.Boy who claimed he had been to heaven retracts story, best-selling book is pulled
A best-selling account of a 6-year-old boy's journey to heaven and back has been pulled after the boy retracted his story.

36.Editor's choice: 'The Secret Wisdom of the Earth' by Christopher Scotton
So many debut novels hit just one note. Coming of age. Small-town life. Adventure. Generational bonding. Social consciousness. How marvelous to start the year of reading with Christopher Scotton's big-hearted "The Secret Wisdom of the Earth," which has a marvelous blend of all these themes.

37.Scott Blackwood on 'See How Small'
In the aftermath of any murder, every community is in shock, especially when the victims are innocent and young. The clamor for justice — and for its attendant consolations, resolution and closure — is immediate, loud and vociferous. But what happens when there is no justice, no...

38.Review: 'Honeydew' by Edith Pearlman
What does it mean to be a contemporary master of the short story? To be a writer's writer? Edith Pearlman is described as both, often and rightfully. On her website, she offers one possible answer: "I am slow," she says. "A sentence often takes an hour to compose before I throw it out. What can...

39.Cornel West on 'The Radical King'
Of the words most frequently used to describe the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. today, "radical" is not high on the list. With his insistence on nonviolence, his Southern humility, his Christian bearing, and his soaring yet measured oratory, King never cast stones, much less fire bombs, real or...

40.Review: 'West of Sunset' by Stewart O'Nan
In the early 2000s, I wrote for People, often covering celebrities. One of our major themes, found in profiles and photos, was to show how stars are just like us. Pictures regularly featured famous people taking out the garbage, playing with their children at parks, shopping for groceries....

42.2015 book preview: The future in reading
In American pop culture, the year 2015 is kind of a big deal. It's the one Marty McFly visits in "Back to the Future II," replete with flying cars, hoverboards, rehydrated pizza and the Cubs winning the World Series — all cinematic prophesies we expect to see fulfilled in the coming...

43.How to build a better book club
The new year is a time when people turn the page and begin a new chapter in their lives. What better time to consider joining or starting a book club? "Book groups broaden one's perspective by exposing participants to various subjects and viewpoints," says Kathy Carrus, a professional book...

44.Review: 'The Martini Shot' by George Pelecanos
George Pelecanos is widely considered to be one of the best crime novelists going, but he's never fit all that comfortably into the genre.

45.Review: 'The Working Man's Reward' by Elaine Lewinnek
Define "suburb." More specifically, define "Chicago suburb." The task is harder than it at first seems. Affluent residential communities from which the elite commute to the Loop? Sure, but what about Cicero or Blue Island?

46.Review: 'The Cause of All Nations' by Don H. Doyle
For many years, our popular conception of the Civil War has been of the war itself — military strategists peering over giant maps, soldiers advancing on the battlefields at Antietam and Gettysburg, Lee's surrender at Appomattox Court House — of armed men advancing in flanks to...

49.Review: 'All My Puny Sorrows' by Miriam Toews
It was late at night when I finished "All My Puny Sorrows," the heartbreaking, valiant, very funny new novel by Miriam Toews. Everyone was asleep. I slipped out of bed and went into the darkened living room, turned on my computer, and started to look online for the names in the book's...
