MINNEAPOLIS - When Angela Hoot reads a novel, she likes to identify with the protagonist. "I always put myself as the main character, like I'm part of the book," said Hoot, a patient liaison at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester.

Fad diets, sage burning and talking sticks pop up all too frequently. And maybe the Utne Reader founder inhaled too much sage because there are weird glitches that his editor should have caught, especially ...

"To Start a War: How the Bush Administration Took America Into Iraq" by Robert Draper; Penguin (496 pages, $30) ___ WASHINGTON - After the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, a blue-ribbon commission and congressional committees uniformly blamed the U.S. national security apparatus for failing to "connect the dots" of evidence that might have exposed Osama bin Laden's plot. Less than two ...

"Hamnet" by Maggie O'Farrell; Knopf (320 pages, $26.95) ___ Despite William Shakespeare's singular position at the peak of Western literature, we know vanishingly little about the man himself. In her stunning new novel, "Hamnet," Maggie O'Farrell seizes that blank canvas and paints a gorgeously written, deeply moving family portrait.
