    'Life Itself': Ebert autobiography a charming remembrance
    In his easygoing, candid and altogether charming autobiography, or, as he calls it, "Life Itself: A Memoir," Roger Ebert fails to mention me: The nights he and I had many drinks on the porch of his house on Dickens Street and elsewhere, the favorable in-...
  • 'Downton Abbey' a classy, addictive soap opera

    "Downton Abbey," a four-part, six-hour miniseries premiering Sunday, Jan. 9, on PBS' "Masterpiece Classic" (check local listings), is a fascinating hybrid, an instantly addictive, don't-bogart-the-popcorn soap opera draped in all the deluxe trappings of...

    David Kehr's Collection of Chicago Reader Reviews Are From a Bygone Era

    Album review: Leonard Cohen, 'Old Ideas'
    3.5 stars (out of 4) It doesn’t seem possible, but Leonard Cohen’s voice sounds even deeper, darker, more foreboding than ever on his 12th studio album in 44 years, “Old Ideas” (Columbia). Cohen is 77, and he doesn’t...
