26.REVIEW: 'Tennessee Williams' by John Lahr
Any biographer entering a crowded field — and the life and work of the great playwright Tennessee Williams is hardly virgin territory, given the confessional diaries, the innumerable extant letters, the documentary films, the previous analyses of his iconic American dramas — must...

27.Eula Biss discusses 'On Immunity'
In preparation for giving birth to her first child five years ago, Eula Biss began researching the vaccination process. Public health policy strongly recommends that every child should be inoculated for a variety of diseases on a schedule that begins within 12 hours of his or her birth with a...

29.National Book Award fiction long list arrives early
The National Book Foundation's plan to release the news of its fiction long list Thursday morning was foiled by news outlets that posted the list Wednesday afternoon. With the embargo broken, we bring you the list now; it includes a National Book Award winner, two National Book Award finalists,...

30.Editor's choice: 'The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace'
As the title of the astonishing book "The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace" makes clear, life did not turn out well for Robert Peace. But was it a tragedy of inevitability, or a tragedy of possibility?

31.'The Mockingbird Next Door' by Marja Mills: an excerpt
"Do you want to take a trip? You can say no." Tim Bannon, my editor at the Chicago Tribune, stood at my cubicle on an August day in 2001. Back then, he ran the daily features section. Tim knew I liked to travel for stories, and that if the story took me to an unusual part of the country, so...

34.Joan Rivers on 'Diary of a Mad Diva'
It wasn't long ago that Joan Rivers' career seemed to be — as she might have put it, ever so delicately — in the toilet. Banned for decades from "The Tonight Show," younger insult comics like Kathy Griffin and Lisa Lampanelli breathing down her neck, Rivers appeared to be fading into old age...

35.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.

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

37.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.

38.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...

39.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...

40.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.

41.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...

42.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?

43.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 —...

44.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...

45.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...

46.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....

47.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....

48.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...

 Chicago Tribune ~ Friday, 15th August, 2014

50.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...
