29.James McGrath Morris on Ethel Payne, 'Eye on the Struggle'

31.'Grand Budapest Hotel' special among Oscar-nominated screenplays
This year's Academy Award-nominated screenplays in the "adapted" category include a trio of variously effective and affecting whitewash jobs based on real people ("American Sniper," "The Imitation Game," "The Theory of Everything"); a ripping melodrama taken from a short film designed to...

36.Review: 'A Spool of Blue Thread' by Anne Tyler
There was a time when the favorite way to put down Anne Tyler was to refer to her novels as "middlebrow." Particularly in the 1980s, a decade of triumphs that began with "Morgan's Passing" and continued with "Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant," "The Accidental Tourist" and the Pulitzer...

37.Review: 'Believer' by David Axelrod
For most of Barack Obama's meteoric political career, David Axelrod was the guy. He was the rumpled fella over there in the corner plotting the next move. How to spin it, sell it, defend it, bury it. Whatever the occasion called for. It was Axelrod who produced "Yes we can!" when Obama was...

41.Editor's choice: 'The Man Who Couldn't Stop' by David Adam
Eccentric and lovable detectives have become standard for so many police procedurals, and science writer David Adam presents a corrective to this popular image presented by germaphobe "Monk" and his idiosyncratic comrades on "Law & Order" spinoffs in the form of his new book, "The Man Who...

42.Review: 'The Knife' by Ross Ritchell
In a mountain pass in what Ross Ritchell's characters call "Afghanipakiraqistan," members of a U.S. special ops team debate the threat posed by a young boy standing on a rock just 50 meters away. He could be a harmless goat herder or could be, as one soldier points out, "strapped with a vest."

48.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...

49.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,...
