Recent Stories

• Joshua Ferris is adapting his critically acclaimed novel Then We Came to the End for HBO.

• Scott Simon has written a new novel titled Windy City: A Novel of Politics. You earn no points for correctly guessing the story takes place in Chicago. The Washington Post has a review and says the book, "for all its emphasis on the sausage-factory venality of big-city politics, seems intended mainly as a big, sloppy valentine to the cultural jambalaya that is 21st-century Chicago." Awww. NPR also recently talked to Simon about the novel, and not only can you listen to the interview online, but you can also read the first chapter of Windy City.
