THIS IS A STORY that will either make you smile and reaffirm your faith in humanity, or make you sad that an incident like this is even considered a big deal in this day and age. It begins the other day after we drove up to see my in-laws on Long Island for my niece's high-school graduation party. We'd been there a few minutes when my wife said to me: "Go out to the car and get my purse, and we'll give Stephanie her present." Fine. I went out to the car. No purse. When I reported back that there was no purse - and therefore no present for the happy graduate - my wife gave a start, as if someone jabbed her with a cattle prod.

"This is crazy!" declared Doug as he turned in a circle to consider his surroundings. "I'm nominating you for an episode of 'Hoarders'!" We were in my walk-in closet, and Doug's facial expression was part amazement, part horror, and part acid indigestion. Usually, I do a closet clean-out by myself. I'd rather chew tinfoil than let somebody into the bottomless pit of wretchedness and despair that is the place where my sweat pants go to die. Unfortunately, I'm not very good at it. No matter how many trips I make to the donation center, somehow I never manage to liberate even two hangers worth of wardrobe space.

St. Francis of Assisi embraced the leper. Doug the Mechanic, who received the Franciscan spirit as a student at Archbishop Curley High School in Baltimore, tried to embrace the felon, but now he says he's done. "Never again," he declared the other day. "It's a lost cause." Doug the Mechanic asked not to be identified in this column. He prefers that customers of his repair shop in Harford County not know that he's had an ex-offender working on their cars. Having an open mind about hiring people with criminal records is not something businesses generally want to advertise.

Farewell Summer Ray Bradbury William Morrow / 224 pages / $24.95 "Is death being on a ship sailing and all your folks left back on the shore?" asks 13-year-old Doug of his grandfather in Ray Bradbury's latest, Farewell Summer. "That's about it, Doug," replies the grandfather - and in Doug's head "the storm began." It's the storm of adolescence, the turmoil of loss, and it hangs low over Farewell Summer, Bradbury's long-delayed follow-up to his 1957 semi-autobiographical Dandelion Wine, which featured a 12-year-old Douglas Spaulding in a handful of short stories that read like miniatures of intricate clockwork, each perfectly machined and chiming with the cogs and gears of idiosyncratic characters, building into a contraption that was as much a time machine as the mysterious creation that lived in the garage of a town denizen.
