26.Review: 'Landline' by Rainbow Rowell
For a lot of centuries in a row, plays ended in one of two ways: either almost everyone would die, or else almost everyone would get married. In exchange for your shilling, you got the satisfaction of a tragic ending or a happy ending — anyway, an ending.

27.Tom Robbins on 'Tibetan Peach Pie'
The sacred, the profane, the comic, the tragic are all part of Tom Robbins' reality

28.Book clubs explore life, not just books
When I was a young man, I reveled in my physical strength and intellectual acuity. Today, I'm very aware of my fragility.

29.Lauren Beukes on 'Broken Monsters'
The South African novelist Lauren Beukes has one twisted imagination. Best known in America for "The Shining Girls," her 2013 novel about a time-traveling serial killer in Chicago, Beukes is now following it up with "Broken Monsters," which begins with a Detroit detective examining a bizarre...

30.Review: 'This Changes Everything' by Naomi Klein
If global warming is a worldwide wake-up call, we're all pretty heavy sleepers. It's telling that 20 years after the United Nations acknowledged the threat of human-driven climate change, we're still basically at a loss for how to get going on the solution. In fact, we're spewing more...

31.Fall promises bounty of great new books
Writing a fall books preview on a limited word budget is a futile exercise. So many great titles hit the shelves in the peak publishing season that kicks off in September and runs through the end of the year, that even as we highlight quite a few, we unfairly omit countless others.

32.David Mitchell on 'The Bone Clocks'
On its surface, David Mitchell's "The Bone Clocks," the sprawling and unclassifiable new novel by the author of the best-selling "Cloud Atlas" (2004), is a page-turning, time-traveling sci-fi yarn designed to appeal to the "Dr. Who" set. It centers on Holly Sykes, a teenage runaway who finds...

33.Editor's Choice: 'Hold the Dark' by William Giraldi
If dark, violent novels aren't usually my cup of tea, why did "Hold the Dark" exert such a hold over me, right from the start?

34.Tavis Smiley on 'Death of a King'
We know nearly everything there is to know about the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., or so we think. But in his new book, "Death of a King: The Real Story of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s Final Year," the PBS and public radio host Tavis Smiley turns his attention — and, he hopes, ours —...

35.Reviews: 'Cold Sweat' and 'Inside the Godfather'
James Brown reveled in tall tales, even though his incredible life story never needed any embellishment. For those who don't already know about how he rose up from rural poverty to wild acclaim across the planet, the new film "Get On Up" highlights these accomplishments. Now, two of his...

36.Review: 'Diary of the Dark Years, 1940-1944' by Jean Guéhenno
Paris in August is a city turned over to visitors. The locals are on vacation, their numbers replaced by sunburned tourists taking selfies at the Eiffel Tower and, perhaps, ordering a "Cheese Max" burger or two from the nearest Quick fast-food joint. But 70 years ago this very weekend, all...

37.Review: 'Adultery' by Paulo Coelho
The Swiss narrator of Brazilian writer Paulo Coelho's latest novel introduces herself as a woman with little cause for complaint — beyond a faked orgasm or two. In her 30s, Linda has a rich financier husband who loves her, two children, and a reporting job at a respected Geneva newspaper....

38.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....

39.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...

40.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

41.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...

42.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...

43.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...

44.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.

45.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.

46.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...

47.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...

48.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,...

49.Excerpt: 'The Mockingbird Next Door'
Read an except from Marja Mills' book, "The Mockingbird Next Door," in which she becomes the next-door neighbor of Harpler and Alice Lee in Monroeville, Ala.
