26.Kid critics weigh in on favorite summer reads
Summer is a quintessential time for reading. For kids, it entertains and inspires, nurtures imagination and creativity, and helps bridge the gap between school years. It's probably a safe bet that Printers Row Journal readers well remember childhood days spent in the pages of a favorite book....

27.Reviews: 'Getting Schooled' by Garret Keizer and 'Blackboard' by Lewis Buzbee
In the fall of 2010, after 14 years as a freelance writer, Garret Keizer returned for a single year to a profession he thought he had left behind forever: teaching high school. As it happened, he was returning to the same rural Vermont school where he had begun his teaching career 30 years...

28.Midwest gets love in Man Booker Prize longlist
Midwestern natives among four of five Americans longlisted for literary award
 Chicago Tribune ~ Friday, 15th August, 2014

29.Editor's choice: 'All Our Names' by Dinaw Mengestu
As first glance, "All Our Names" seems to be a straightforward immigrant story. A young man, carrying the name of Isaac on his passport, has come from Uganda to Laurel, a small Midwestern town, on a one-year student visa. His case is assigned to Helen, with Lutheran Relief Services. Chapters...

30.Review: 'The Magician's Land' by Lev Grossman
At the beginning of "The Magician's Land," the last in Lev Grossman's otherworldly and excellent "Magicians" trilogy, our hero finds himself in a crappy strip-mall bookstore in New Jersey, awaiting a meeting. How far he's come and how far he's fallen: Quentin Coldwater went from a sullen...

31.Roxane Gay on 'Bad Feminist'
It's not easy being a feminist these days (not that it ever was), in part because the push for equality for women managed to pick up a lot of negative baggage over the decades. Today, many people — including many women — think of feminism as a bra-burning, man-hating caricature of itself. And...

32.Review: 'Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage' by Haruki Murakami
"Poets die adolescents," Robert Lowell wrote, and it's supposed to be romantic. Personally I think it sounds like hell. Just imagine: never growing out of your teenage rawness to the world, your pathological vulnerability to insults and beauty, your terrible godlike hormones.

33.Marja Mills addresses Harper Lee controversy at literary event
Less than a week after the publication of Marja Mills' memoir, “The Mockingbird Next Door,” her story of befriending the famously reclusive 88-year-old author Harper Lee, the book remains embroiled in controversy.

34.Review: 'The Invisible Bridge' by Rick Perlstein
It's a cliché. The college professor asks for a show of hands. How many of you know about the Vietnam war? Nobody. Watergate? A sprinkling. (Maybe they saw the movie with Robert Redford on Netflix.) The kidnapping of heiress Patty Hearst and that whole business with the Symbionese Liberation...

35.Richard House on 'The Kills'
It isn't often that literary fiction mixes successfully with the thriller genre. The delicate balance between the rich texture and characters of the former with the propulsive narrative momentum and puzzle-solving aspects of the latter is fiendishly difficult to pull off. But in his massive and...

36.Andersonville's Women & Children First Bookstore has new, but familiar, owners
There is joy in Andersonville: Women & Children First Bookstore, the venerable and beloved independent shop at 5233 N. Clark St. has new owners who are very much like the old owners. The change was announced earlier this week: The store’s founders/owners, Linda Bubon and Ann Christophersen,...

Author says she plans a "sister book" to memoir "Just Kids"
 Chicago Tribune ~ Monday, 14th July, 2014

45.Review: 'California' by Edan Lepucki
Edan Lepucki's debut nove is a propulsive, subtly sinister, post-apocalyptic tale in which its protagonists have fled crumbling Los Angeles to rough it out in the forest.

48.Review: 'The Hundred-Year House' by Rebecca Makkai
Makkai's straightforward satire gives way to a labyrinthine puzzle of interlocking symmetries

49.Review: 'Your Fathers, Where Are They?' by Dave Eggers
A sense of troubling void animates Eggers' new novel in which an angry young man kidnaps half of a dozen people -- and he has a few things he'd like to get off his chest.
 Chicago Tribune ~ Thursday, 3rd July, 2014

50.Review: 'The Mockingbird Next Door' by Marja Mills
Netflix night with Harper Lee sounds like a late-night comedy sketch, as does an afternoon at the laundromat, or even a quick stop at McDonald's. Yet these scenarios represent just another day living next door to the reclusive author.
