Times News Service A selection of summaries from The New York Times Book Review: • "Sailing Alone Around the Room: New and Selected Poems" by Billy Collins. (Random House, $13.95.) Crisp, suburban and antiseptic, the poems in this greatest- hits collection by America's poet laureate are infused with his characteristic self-deprecating humor, even as death, longing and regret hover at the margins of his work. • "The Collected Stories of Isaac Babel" edited by Nathalie Babel. (Norton, $16.95.) This compilation of short fiction, drawn from "The Complete Works of Isaac Babel" (2001), reveals the Russian writer's lifelong effort to fuse the Russian, the Jewish, the revolutionary and the literary, a synthesis that breathed life into his work even as it doomed him {he was shot on Stalin's orders in 1940). • "Ava's Man" by Rick Bragg. (Vintage, $13.) The author, a national correspondent for The New York Times, follows up "All Over but the Shoutin'," his 1997 memoir about his mother's struggle to raise a family by herself in rural Appalachia, with one about his maternal grandfather, a roofer, brawler and natural storyteller who lived a hard but proud life in the poor South. • "Bing Crosby: A Pocketful of Dreams. The Early Years, 1903-1940" by Gary Giddins. (Back Bay/Little, Brown, $17.95.) The eminent jazz critic sets out to restore the fading reputation of a wildly successful crooner and recording artist who presented himself as a simple nice guy but who was actually enigmatic and often remote. • "Haussmann, or the Distinction" by Paul Lafarge. (Picador USA, $13.) This hallucinatory novel invents fanciful variations (notably a love affair with an orphan girl) on themes from the life of Georges Eugene Haussmann, the 19th-century power broker who tore up a dank, medieval Paris and transformed it into the shimmering city of today. • "Highwire Moon" by Susan Straight. (Anchor, $14.) A novelist well versed in the lives of unsung working-class heroes explores the travails of Mixtec migrant laborers from the poor southern Mexican state of Oaxaca in this tale of an unlikely couple brought together and then torn apart by the Immigration and Naturalization Service. • "Stuffed: Adventures of a Restaurant Family" by Patricia Volk. (Vintage, $13.) Despite its tide, this memoir by Volk, an essayist, novelist and short-story writer, is less about restaurants (though food is never far from the narrative) than about her extended New York City family (her great-grandfather introduced pastrami to the United States). • Foodies will also enjoy "Serve It Forth" (North Point/Farrar, Straus & Giroux, $12), M.F.K. Fisher's first book, an opinionated tour of gastronomic affairs from ancient Egypt to modem times. • Rounding out the meal is "The Passionate Epicure: La Vie et la Passion de Dodin-Bouffant, Gourmet" by Marcel Rouff (Modem Library, $11.95), a melange of novel, cookbook and satire about a provincial master epicure dedicated to the pursuit of 1'amour and the pleasures of the table. Last week's answers ON THE BOOKSHELF Seasonal stories for children By AMANDA ROGERS Fort Worth Star-Telegram Crunchy apples and crunching leaves, picking pumpkins and pulling on sweaters — fall is finally here. We can get in the mood for autumn with these five children's books. • "Maisy's Seasons" by Lucy Cousins; Publisher: Candlewick Press; Price: $8.99; Ages: 2 to 4. Spin the wheels and lift the flaps on this hide-and-seek board book, featuring Maisy the cute white mouse. This big book, with bold illustrations by Cousins, will help little people understand the changing seasons and the fun things to do in each. In the fall, see what Maisy digs in her garden and plucks from the tree, then in winter flip a flap^to see the snow fall, a snowball fly and a snowman rise. In the spring, there are new babies on the farm and in the summer, Maisy hits the beach. • "Apples Here!" by Will Hubbell; Publisher: Albert Whitman & Co.; Price: $15.95; Ages: 3 to 8. Follow apples through a year of developing, from tiny buds and beauti- ful blossoms to applesauce for Hanukkah and apple cider, to leftovers that feed wild animals. Hubbetl's bright illustrations make you long for a big apple to bite. He uses two pages in the back of the hardback book to describe how apples are pollinated and grow, and their symbolism and place in history. • "Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf" by Lois Ehlert; Publisher: Harcourt Brace & Co.; Price: $16; Ages: 3 to 8. The bright red and yellow leaves on the cover of this hardback book will make you want to pick it up and trace your finger along the raised veins of the leaves. Inside, Ehlert made textural collages of roots, seeds, leaves and paint to celebrate the seasons in the life of a sugar maple tree. Follow it from a tiny seedpod spinning off a tree and escaping a squirrel in the forest to the author's front yard, where it grew tall and changed with the seasons. The most vibrant, of course, is fall, when the sugar maple leaves turn crimson and gold. Pages in the back of the book tell the parts of the trees and how to plant and care for diem. • "Pumpkin Circle: The Story of a Garden." by George Levenson; Pub- lisher: Tricycle Press; Price: $7.95 paperback, $15.95 hardback; Ages: 3 to 8. Levenson follows the pumpkins as they grow from a seed to a great orange gourd, but it's Shmuel Thaler's photographs that you will love. His vivid photos capture great mounds of bright-orange pumpkins, tiny green pumpkin plants that soon trail over every available surface. The canary-yellow blossoms in midsummer-soon lead to tiny pumpkins, picking time and, of course, jack-o'- lanterns! Levenson gives step-by-step instructions in the back on how to grow pumpkins. • "Johnny Appleseed" by Rosemary and Vincent Benet; Publisher: Margaret K. McEIderry Books; Price: $16; Ages: 4 to 8. We've all heard the tall tales about gentle John Chapman, who wandered across the United States with a tin pan on his head, communing with nature, looking pretty raggedy and planting apple seeds that grew into trees. In this hardback, though, it's S.D. Schindler's humorous drawings that show him sleeping in a tree, wandering west and always planting that make it fun to read. A cookbook for the Greg Patent's "Baking in America: Traditional and Contemporary Favorites from the Past 200 Years" (Houghton Mifflin, $35) is a keeper, a treasure trove of history and straightforward recipes. Too often baking recipes contain puzzling directions, but that's not the case here. The instructions are perfectly clear and easy to follow. In addition to the recipes, "Baking in America" presents our nation's history as seen through its kitchens. It features profiles of cooking teachers dating back to 1828, when the first American baking book was published by author Eliza Leslie. 10/20/02 LOS ANGELES TIMES CROSSWORD PUZZLE "LOST AT SEA" By NORA PEARLSTONE ACROSS 1 Aardvarks, e.g. 8 Where Christ stopped, in a Levi title 13 Deep down 20 Withdrawn 21 Hockey Hall of Famer Dick 22 Apparition 23 Rowing practice schedule? 25 Wood-eating insect 26 Lush 27 Wrapping aid 28 First-aid paraphernalia 30 Knife, perhaps 31 Indigenous 34 Start for space? 36 Cooks (up) 38 Author LeShan 39 Boat lost in the Chicago fire? 44 Stay on the beat? 47 Pilgrims to Mecca: Var. 48 Lohengrin's»love 49 Christmas cruise ship? 54 "Don't bother" 57 Syr. neighbor 58 Two-piece piece 59 Euro predecessor 60 Situp beneficiaries 61 Red wine substance 63 Interstate roller 65 it cuts wood with the grain 67 Krypton, for one 68 Really cheap two-master? 73 Wagon full of kids, say 76 Marketing relationships 77 Longing 81 "Alt _!" 82 TV host Peeples 85 Hawaii's state bird 86 Jr. Olympic Games sponsor 87 Actress Tyler 88 Classify 90 Repair work for Noah? 94 Concept 96 Big name in theaters 98 Face mask wearer 99 Commercial transport guardian?
