Immediately after I finished Raynor Winn’s 2019 memoir, “The Salt Path,” I went to the computer and called up Google. “What happened to Moth?” I typed. I needed to know; as I read that powerful book, Winn and her husband, Moth Walker, became important to me. Winn’s gorgeous new memoir, “The Wild Silence,” answers my question and does a whole lot more, exploring love, the importance of nature, the meaning of home. (Penguin Random House/TNS) In the first book, Raynor and Moth had lost their farm

Haruki Murakami. | Scanpix Denmark / Reuters There comes a point in life when one of your favourite writers stops being your favourite. That doesn’t that stop you from reading him – in fact, a new book is always received in anticipation.

On the death of Princess Diana, I was asked to explain a royal funeral to American readers. On paper I was fit for the task, having been a history professor. But the editor who made the assignment didn’t realize that I’ll always look at life through the eyes of a Chicago street-corner boy.

What do you do with a 4-foot, 10-pound sloth? Sounds like the start of a dad joke, doesn't it? For me, it's a question I've been pondering since September when our oldest daughter, Ruby, packed up and left for Spain to teach English for a year.
