Recent Stories

Chicago lit news from around the web:

• The Guardian recently published an excerpt from JM Coetzee's new novel, Diary of a Bad Year. The book club will be reading Disgrace by Coetzee for November. And would you like a review to go with that excerpt?

• The Chicago Public Library has just announced that the fall selection for One Book, One Chicago is The Crucible by Arthur Miller. You can download the complete .pdf guide here. Not coincidentally, The Crucible is also part of the Steppenwolf Theatre's lineup this autumn.

• Keir Graff at the Booklist blog has a thoughtful response to Adam Langer's harsh review of Michael Harvey's The Chicago Way in last weekend's Tribune.
