"In the Cut," by Susanna Moore. Knopf. 180 pages. $21Sex sells, as the saying goes. If that's the case, "In The Cut" should be a hit. It is a stark, stylish, and graphic erotic thriller - quite a departure for Susanna Moore, whose previous books "Sleeping Beauties" and "The Whiteness of Bones," were far more quietly literary affairs set in Hawaii.Frannie, "In The Cut's" dispassionate narrator, lives in Manhattan. A New York University linguistics professor obsessed with slang, she defends herself from the world with words and arch humor.

The politics-by-the-numbers game we play has been quirkily friendly to Mitt Romney. He was able to waltz into New Hampshire a week before its Republican presidential primary boasting of being a winner in the Iowa caucuses. He could do so despite the fact that he beat former Sen. Rick Santorum, a mere asterisk in the standings a week earlier, by the infinitesimal margin of eight votes. In doing so, and after spending millions in an 11th-hour effort to make up for his near-absenteeism in Iowa, he actually won six fewer votes than he had garnered in his second-place finish there four years ago. Until that late gambling surge, the former Massachusetts governor had pretty much kissed off Iowa as unwelcome terrain.

THE ISSUE: -- Merriweather Post Pavilion hosts Wine in the Woods this weekend, then the HFStival on May 27-28. Talk about diversity. Isn't this what Columbia is all about? Diversity? Maybe a faint echo Columbia was originally about ideals of diversity that go a bit deeper than Wine in the Woods and the HFSestival. Columbia is/was about diversity in housing, employment, and education. Diversity in cultural events also played a part in the original concept of Columbia. There may be a faint echo of that ideal in these two events.

Watch for a close conjunction of a slim crescent moon and the brilliant planet Venus, high in the western sky after sunset this evening, if skies are clear. Just three days past new, the moon may show some "Earthshine" - a faint illumination of the dark portion of the moon, courtesy of sunlight reflected onto the moon from the day side of the Earth. With luck and clear air, you might also be able to spot tiny, star-like Mercury, well below Venus and to right, close to the horizon.

Pity poor Jimmy Stewart, the retired police detective in Alfred Hitchcock's "Vertigo" whose fear of heights causes him to lose the woman of his dreams not once but twice in the same movie. The bell tower of San Juan Bautista mission church outside San Francisco was the culprit in those memorable scenes, but now a popular travel magazine says our unlucky hero would have been just as terrified by an encounter with Maryland's Chesapeake Bay Bridge. Travel + Leisure magazine has listed the Bay Bridge as one of the 27 scariest spans in the world, right up there with Japan's tremulous Musou Tsuribashi Bridge, the Mackinac Bridge connecting Michigan's Upper and Lower peninsulas and the rickety bamboo crossings through Colombia's National Archeological Park.

If you walked into the Swedish horror movie Let the Right One In midway through, you might see the 12-year-old boy hero chastely embrace a girl his own age and think, "How sweet." When she asks him if he'd love her if she weren't a girl, you might think, "How interesting," then under your breath start muttering, "Ah, youth. Ah, Sweden. Ah, nuts." But she isn't a girl; she's a vampire. And this boy is not just experiencing a surging crush but a life-defining bond. Most contemporary horror films derive shocks from mere torture.

JERUSALEM -- Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice returned to Israel yesterday for the third time in six weeks, seeking to nudge the Israeli and Palestinian sides closer together in advance of a U.S.-sponsored peace conference. But Rice, after a day of meetings with Israeli officials, including Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, acknowledged that her two-day visit is unlikely to produce agreement on a hoped-for joint pre-conference statement of mutual goals. "They're still working. And like with anything of this kind, you know, they're going through some knotty discussions," Rice said.

BOSTON -- In retrospect, it was probably not the best way to reassure the faithful. When James Dobson, child psychologist turned political kingmaker, rose to speak at the Values Voter Summit dinner, he first complained about media reports that the religious right was dead. Then he cheerily announced, "Welcome to the morgue." Yes, well, not yet. The much-reported news from last weekend's gathering was that the honchos of the religious right are still wanted by the Republican candidates.

We know about the housing market. Now soothsayers worry weakness will spread from Realtors and mortgages to the broader economy. In that light, Acuras and Impalas may be trying to tell us something. Maryland auto dealers sold 1,965 fewer cars and trucks in August than they did the year before - a 5 percent decline, according to the Motor Vehicle Administration. This year through August car and truck sales have fallen 4.4 percent compared with the same span in 2006. That's hardly the degree of damage we're seeing in housing.
