WHEN OLUDARA was a young boy in Natchez, Miss., a drifter walked in to his life. His name was Lavender Kinds, and he arrived with a couple of trunks full of books and no clothes. Dara's godparents put Kinds up in a vacant church on a lot they owned. "It turns out he was a published poet, and the man could speak seven or eight languages and he played all instruments," Dara recalls.Supported by the community, Kinds became a mentor to Dara and other neighborhood children, teaching them tap dancing, painting, typing and music.

Out-sprinted by swimmers born after she won her first gold medal in 1984, Dara Torres failed in her quest for a sixth Olympic Games Monday night. Torres, 45, of Parkland, Fl., churned down the 50-meter pool in 24.82 seconds, coming in fourth. That was 32/100ths of a second behind first-place finisher, Jessica Hardy, and a mere 9/100th of a second after Kara Lynn Joyce. Hardy, 25, and Joyce, 26, go on to compete in the 50-meter freestyle race in London. Coming in third was Christine Magnuson, also 26. A chagrined but still smiling Torres said it was an emotional and rewarding experience to attempt another Olympics.

All Other Nights By Dara Horn W.W. Norton & Co. / 384 pages / $24.95 A ll Other Nights is such an apparent departure from Dara Horn's previous work that when I learned what Horn was writing, I thought she might not be able to bring it off. I should have known better. Unlike Horn's excellent first novel, In the Image, and her jaw-dropping The World to Come, All Other Nights starts in the territory of historical thrillers. Jacob Rappaport, the son of a German-Jewish New York merchant, escapes marriage to a business partner's mentally handicapped daughter by joining the Union Army, which ropes him into cloak-and-dagger work.

BEIJING - Dara Torres was born on April 15, 1967, two weeks before a blessed event was held in Las Vegas at the Aladdin Hotel, the wedding of singer Elvis Presley and his bride, Priscilla. Dara's father, Eddie Torres, bought the Aladdin (in a partnership with Wayne Newton) 13 years later. By then, his daughter the swim prodigy was a fixture in the expensive pools of Beverly Hills, including the one in the Torres family's sprawling 10-bath home there. He meant a great deal to Dara way back then.

They watched the building going up, and then the shelves filling up with books. But it wasn't until yesterday that Dara Davis was able to answer her book-loving son's question -- "Are you taking us to the library today?" -- with a long awaited, "Yes." The newest branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library opened at noon yesterday on Orleans Street, and not a moment too soon for 7-year-old Khalil Davis. He's been known to go to a library, check out five books and return later in the day because he's already finished them.
