In a 1956 cover story marking the centenary of Sigmund Freud's birth, Time celebrated the Viennese physician as the father of American psychiatry. While the magazine acknowledged that fewer than 10% of the nation's 9,000 psychiatrists were "hard-core analysts," it estimated that at least 70% of those trained since the early 1930s were steeped in Freud. "His teachings," the laudatory piece concluded, "have drawn the charts for modern medicine's pr...

David Foster Wallace was a larger-than-life figure even before he committed suicide in September 2008 at age 46. By then, he’d published two novels, including the 1,079 page “Infinite Jest,” as well as several volumes of essays and short fiction concerned with the minutiae of consciousness, what it meant to occupy one’s own life.

In his latest novel, "All This Life," Joshua Mohr captures a digital moment. The author brings together a cast of wounded people looking to simultaneously connect and avoid connection online, proving that social media is in some ways our most human endeavor — we invent that which we need to indulge our tendencies of social anxiety and informational gluttony.

We live in a world in which mainstream ideas about sexual orientation and gender identity are swiftly changing. Caitlyn Jenner is dinnertime conversation in households across America. We are learning a brand-new language and set of guidelines, but some of us, who have built lives within the narrow confines of heterosexual existence, are going to need to study a different set of maps if we are to navigate this fantastic new landscape.

What do you do when you encounter a homeless person? Most people have one of two responses: either avert their eyes and move away, or give the person a dollar, sometimes more, hoping to alleviate their suffering but knowing a few dollars here and there probably won't. Heidi Wood, the kindhearted protagonist of Mary Kubica's "Pretty Baby," does something more direct, and with far-reaching repercussions.

Author Susan Southard was haunted long into adulthood by the memory of a field trip — during her year as a teen-age exchange student — to the Nagasaki Atom Bomb Museum. In her magnificent and necessary book, "Nagasaki: Life After the Bomb," she recalls standing beside her Japanese classmates as they all stared in horror at photographs of charred adults and children, graphic evidence of her country's decision to drop the atomic bomb on noncombatan...
