THE FRENCH COMPOSER Berlioz was a Romantic, but not your shrinking violet kind. He sent his youthful, early "Eight Scenes of Faust" to Goethe, the creator of the great German poem and his inspiration. The attempt to curry favor with the aging master poet failed. A friend advised Goethe the Berlioz score was "a fragment of an abortion resulting from a hideous incest." The correspondence was doomed. Berlioz shelved the project.But not for good. Seventeen years later in 1846 a more experienced Berlioz used fragments and new material for "The Damnation of Faust," called it a "dramatic legend" but not an opera, and after a bad start sailed off with a masterpiece of Romantic flourish.

Families are always fertile ground for novelists. With a little digging, even an average family turns out to be as filled with intrigue as the Borgias. Topping this early fall list are three books about families that are spectacularly beyond average. Caramelo (Knopf, 448 pages, $24) is a sprawling, raucous affair that weaves together several generations of la familia Reyes. This is Sandra Cisneros' first novel since 1985's The House on Mango Street. That book, told from a young Mexican-American girl's viewpoint, was elegant and simple.

For years, old Halloween candy containers, cards and decorations were the wallflowers of holiday collectibles.That tacky orange and black just didn't go over; neither did those goofy pumpkins and cackling witches.Collectors snapped up antique Valentines, with their elegant rose and lace motifs, or old Christmas decorations, with shining tinsel and smiling St. Nicks.Even Labor Day postcards stirred more interest than Halloween cards, because of their scarcity.But, in recent years, prices for old Halloween souvenirs have soared higher than the Wicked Witch on her broomstick; prices are up 30 percent this year, and Halloween is now the holiday, collectors say."

There is something wrong with a society that can't allow itself to just enjoy the simple pleasures of a Christmas TV special without analyzing the experience to death. Have we become so media-critical and deconstructionist that there's no place for a little Rudolph joy in our post-postmodern hearts? That's what I was thinking as I sat down with Bravo's The Christmas Special Christmas Special, a one-hour look at the history of Christmas television shows. The special, hosted by Carson Kressley (Queer Eye for the Straight Guy)

WASHINGTON - President Bush, in a brief private ceremony yesterday in the Oval Office, signed into law legislation allowing the creation of a National Museum of African-American History and Culture as part of the Smithsonian Institution. The signing caps a turbulent, nearly century-long quest for such a museum and represents a significant victory for the legislators, business and civic leaders, artists and veterans who have championed the project over several generations. Despite a lack of fanfare and no public statement from Bush, backers of the museum said the atmosphere surrounding the event was heavy with emotion and historic significance.
