Recent Stories

I've been dealing with a wicked cold and nursing a sick cat, so I'm behind on my links once again. But here a just a few Chicago-lit related stories you may have missed recently:

• The Chicago Sun-Times profiles local author Keir Graff and talks about his new thriller, My Fellow Americans.

• Read an interview with cartoonist Anders Nilsen and view pages from his sketchbooks.

• Speaking of cartoonists, yes, "Mr. Wonderful" by Daniel Clowes is continuing in the New York Times. We are now up to chapter 12.

• The Denver Post reviews the lastest novel by Robert Hellenga, The Italian Lover, and says it "captures a moment in time that is so real you can smell the bus fumes." You can also read an excerpt from the book.

• Want another book excerpt? The LA Times has the introduction from Finding Iris Chang by Paula Kamen.

• At the New York Review of Books, Sarah Kerr reviews Exit Ghost by Philip Roth.
