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.

What do vampires do after massacring a wedding reception? Plan for world domination, of course. After last week's monstrously ridiculous episode, this week was a bit more sedate. For"True Blood"that means a graphic sex scene, double Sams (seriously) and some super-scary sections involving Sookie and Jason's parents' killer. But there wasn't a naked Lilith. So there's that. COMING DOWN: Still high on non-mainstreaming and feeding on wedding party folks, the Chancellors regroup at the Authority to plan their next step.

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.

The current exhibit of contemporary Russian art at the Jewish Community Center is a great disappointment, and one needs a little background on this failure.Alexandre Gertsman, a recent immigrant from Russia, has formed a foundation to promote the works of contemporary artists from the former Soviet Union. He curated a challenging exhibit last January at Baltimore's Evergreen House, and another of his exhibits, called "Meaning as a Second Language: A Contemporary Russian Initiative," debuted this summer at the Jewish Community Center of West Hartford, Conn.

The eager way a glittery-eyed kid at a South London synagogue tries to lure our cricket-loving hero to a study group by saying they'll be talking about sex; the moment his German-Jewish mother blurts out her bond with her new Jamaican neighbors because she, too, is an immigrant. These casual revelations from Wondrous Oblivion, tomorrow's kick-off presentation of Baltimore's Jewish Film Festival, epitomize the off-hand humor and insight to be gained from intimate depictions of a subculture - one of this festival's specialties.

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)
