26.Scott Simon on 'Unforgettable'
National Public Radio host Scott Simon turns a corner at the Art Institute of Chicago and there it is: "Nighthawks" by Edward Hopper, four lonely figures whiling away the wee hours in a New York City diner of the 1940s. Simon's late mother, Patricia — the subject of his new memoir, "Unforgettable:...

28.Review: 'Missoula' by Jon Krakauer
Nestled in an ancient glacial lake bed in the Northern Rockies, Missoula is Montana's second largest city. It's bisected by the Clark Fork, a major tributary of the Columbia River, confluent with the Bitterroot River to the southwest and Big Blackfoot to the east. (The latter famously stars in...

29.Review: 'My Struggle: Book Four' by Karl Ove Knausgaard
There's a strong temptation to resist the Norwegian novelist Karl Ove Knausgaard, whose vast six-part autobiographical novel "My Struggle" has gradually been appearing in English over the past few years. That's for two reasons. The first is the hushed, almost disbelieving admiration that our country's...

34.Review: 'The Dream Lover' by Elizabeth Berg
Amantine-Lucile-Aurore Dudevant, née Dupin, is not a household name, yet she has the distinction of being France's first best-selling female novelist. Dudevant wrote under a pseudonym — George Sand — and is known more for wearing men's clothing than for the magnificent contributions she made to...

35.Me, My Shelf and I: Mark Andersen
Floating bookshelves, framed family photos, earth-tone walls: Mark Andersen's living room is an inviting space, its theme not immediately detectable.

36.Review: 'God Help the Child' by Toni Morrison
Toni Morrison is an American literary treasure. But some treasures, no matter how valued or precious, can have blemishes that mar their luster. That's sadly the case with Morrison's 11th novel, "God Help the Child." The theme is vintage Morrison: an allegorical tale of a black woman on a near-mystical,...

37.LeVar Burton wins Chicago Tribune Young Adult Literary Award
To adults of a certain age, actor LeVar Burton will always be Kunta Kinte, hero of the epic 1977 miniseries about slavery in America. But for a generation of younger people, Burton has a special place in their memories as host of "Reading Rainbow," the Emmy-winning PBS series that for 23...

38.Kate Mulgrew on 'Born With Teeth'
At least three generations of television viewers have the actress Kate Mulgrew fixed in their minds, albeit in distinctly different stages of her career. She was the original Mary Ryan, the independent young heroine of the ABC daytime drama "Ryan's Hope." She was the indomitable Capt. Kathryn...

39.Me, My Shelf and I: Irma Sless-Kitain
Irma Sless-Kitain's book collection reflects her experience in publishing and time spent abroad (two years in Bangkok, eight in Japan). And an abiding love of comics. And cats.

43.Review: 'There Is Simply Too Much to Think About' by Saul Bellow
I had long taught Saul Bellow, and have long stopped teaching Bellow. "The Adventures of Augie March," his 1954 National Book Award-winning novel, is an epic tale of Chicago imagined as an open grid of personal possibility edged by harsh economic (and erotic) realities, wherein the...

44.Review: 'Days of Rage' by Bryan Burrough
On a balmy spring day in 1971, a pair of middle-aged Manhattan patrolman, Nicholas Binetti and Thomas Curry, decided to pursue a car they saw speeding the wrong way down 112th Street. Pulling alongside it, they were surprised to come face to face with the barrel of a submachine gun. As Bryan...

Ten years ago, comic artist Lucy Knisley met a guy named John on the Internet and agreed to go for a bike ride through Wicker Park. On their first date they browsed the stacks at Myopic Books, ate sandwiches in the park and perused Quimby's eclectic selection of zines and comics.

47.Sara Gruen on 'At the Water's Edge'
All of Sara Gruen's novels, including her massive 2006 best-seller "Water for Elephants," feature animals — horses, apes, the eponymous pachyderms — and her new book dangles the possibility of continuing that string in the surprising form of the Loch Ness monster. In "At the Water's...

48.Reviews: 'So You've Been Publicly Shamed' and 'Is Shame Necessary'
Early in 2012, a well-known writer seemed to go slightly crazy. Jon Ronson was already something of a journalistic stuntman, a sleuth who sniffed out strangely compelling stories on topics like military-funded psychics ("The Men Who Stare at Goats") and psychopaths ("The Psychopath Test")....

49.Two Nelson Algren documentaries to screen soon
When Nelson Algren died on May 9, 1981, he was near-broke, living in a ramshackle rental home in Sag Harbor, N.Y., and all alone. Not a fitting farewell for a writer Ernest Hemingway once rated second only to William Faulkner as America's greatest novelist. Apart from the Tribune's short...
