Leigh Bardugo talks ‘Rule of Wolves,’ Netflix’s ‘Shadow and Bone’ series and heroic women

When Leigh Bardugo finished “Ruin and Rising,” the third book in her Shadow and Bone trilogy published in 2014, she wanted a break from the Grishaverse, the Russian-inflected fantasy world that she had been building in her novels. A billboard changed all that. The L.A.-based author didn’t actually want to see what was being advertised — the film “The Monuments Men” — but it got her thinking about “Oceans 11” and that generated another idea. “I had to pull over to the side of the road because I r...

Why Nobel Prize winner Kazuo Ishiguro thinks his new book is like Charlie Daniels’ ‘Devil Went Down to Georgia’

Kazuo Ishiguro loves genre-hopping and so the Nobel Prize-winning author of novels like “The Remains of the Day” and “Never Let Me Go” decided he’d write a children’s book. “I’ve always been fascinated by picture books,” says Ishiguro, 66. “Adults are trying to present to young children a kinder version of the real world. But while there are smiley people and the animals don’t eat each other, you can often see in the illustrations little hints of sadness or darkness. It’s like they’re saying,...

Help! Reading slump

Hi! I have a reading slump. I used to read like five-six books a month or even more if time allowed me but recently I hit the wall. I got totally stuck on one of Kristin Hannah's books (sorry!), I finished it but it was a struggle and I hit a slump since then. What can I do? Can you recommend something else, something to break the terrible slump? Should I get out of my comfort zone and try to read something totally different than I used to? How do you deal with the reading slump?

These captivating short stories in ‘Wild Swims’ reveal strange, haunted characters

By Ann Levin “Hygge” is the Danish word for a sense of coziness and comfort that is supposedly characteristic of that Scandinavian country. In her latest collection of short stories, “Wild Swims,” the Danish writer Dorthe Nors puts to rest any notion that her compatriots are happier or more content than the rest of us. Indeed, the story titled “Hygge” starts out in a cozy sort of way with a woman making coffee and “one of those chocolate cakes that are soft in the middle.” But it quickly turns d...

Best-selling author Kristin Hannah reveals the unusual journey of ‘The Four Winds’

Kristin Hannah had spent a year researching and writing an early draft of her new novel when she realized she’d gone astray. “The Four Winds” is set in the Texas panhandle as the Depression and the Dust Bowl environmental disaster. In the margins of Hannah’s story as she initially conceived it, there was the character Elsa, a young woman who’d grown up feeling unloved and unworthy, who found meaning as the mother of two young children. “I wrote it for at least a year, and Elsa was kind of a peri...

Healing After Suicide

Suicide crosses all boundaries: age, race, gender, economic and social. No one is immune. Sometimes, there are no warning signs. Often, families have tried for years to get help. But suicide also can be an impulsive action, influenced by substance abuse or extreme stress. Partly due to misinformation or jokes surrounding mental illness and suicidal impulses, individuals with undiagnosed health issues of the mind and personality may not understand what is wrong.   People with a variety of cult...
