  • 'Transition,' Chaz Bono
  • 'Transition,' Chaz Bono

    The son of Sonny and Cher talks about growing up as a girl.
      Puberty was rough and Bono came out as a lesbian, but something still wasn’t quite right. He didn’t identify with women, gay or otherwise, and distant feelings of masculinity colored his relationships with them and with his family. Bono’s father seemed supportive of his lesbianism, he writes.

  • 'The Bed Bug Survival Guide,' Jeff Eisenberg

    They were in the casino, inside your hotel room — and now they’re inside your pajamas.
      Bed bugs are tiny — and in the first stages of life, almost impossible to see. As adults, they’re about the size of apple seeds. A female bug will lay up to 500 eggs in her lifetime. Bed bugs can squeeze through a crack the width of a business card, but are perfectly happy to walk over the threshold of your front door.

  • 'Moonwalking with Einstein,' Joshua Foer

    This explains why you can never remember where you left your car keys.
      As it turns out, there’s a good excuse for your lapses. Psychologists say there’s a “curve of forgetting” that starts the second you learn something, and if there are more than seven components, the problem worsens. (Phone numbers are seven digits long for a reason.

    Her husband’s in Afghanistan. How does an Army wife fill the long wait?
      When you’re an Army wife living on a base like Fort Hood in Texas, you learn to get along with others, even though you might never see them again after this deployment. You’ll be moving in six months or a year or two — but that doesn’t mean you won’t baby-sit in a pinch.

  • 'Burial for a King,' Rebecca Burns

    So it won’t be forgotten: the nationwide earthquake caused by MLK’s assassination.
      She was trying to set up a meeting between King and Calvin Craig of the Ku Klux Klan. As King’s director of public relations, Clayton was used to hoaxes — so when a waitress handed her a note that said Dr. King had been shot, she ignored it. Soon, realizing the horror, she hurried to Coretta King’s side.

  • 'Wishing for a Snow Day,' Peg Meier

    Recall your favorite memory from childhood. What would your child-self have to say about it?

  • 'Moonlight Mile,' Dennis Lehane

    What if a detective helps people but the people aren’t worth helping?
      Lehane has a distinct talent for taking everyday people and the moral questions they’re wrestling with and twisting them until the reader screams. Still, there’s a lot of humanity in Lehane’s novel; enough sarcasm to make you laugh and enough sentimentality to develop sympathy.
