The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry

After the death of his wife and the loss of a rare volume, a curmudgeon of a bookshop owner finds a new meaning in the motto "No man is an island."  The witty and wise novelist Gabrielle Zevin has produced that most precious of things: a tale as entertaining as it is uplifting. 

July 22: On this day in 1941, on his twelfth wedding anniversary, Eugene O'Neill presented the just-finished manuscript of Long Day's Journey into Night to his wife, Carlotta.

Crime fiction legends Dennis Lehane and Michael Connelly discuss the new book that unites their beloved sleuths Patrick Kenzie and Harry Bosch.
