Peter Falk had a fine career on the stage and in feature films. His crazed comic performance in "The In-Laws" alone would guarantee a major appreciation from film critics and scholars. But it is his network television work in the 1970s as a modest, sly, stub-of-a-cigar-smoking detective in a well-worn wreck of a trench coat for which he will be fondly remembered and celebrated for years to come. Falk, who died at his Beverly Hills home Thursday at age 83, gave life to a fictional detective named Lt. Columbo who was and is one of the only American crime solving characters who can rival the best in British detective fiction.

Peter Falk is listed as one of the co-stars of Next, the ESP/time travel flick starring Nicolas Cage as a guy who can see two minutes into his own future. But really, the filmmakers shouldn't have bothered. Sure, Falk, 79, shows up for one scene, playing formula role No. 27b in the Hollywood handbook: the irascible old codger to Cage's brash, adventurous hotshot. But Falk barely registers (he's onscreen only a couple minutes), and the part is absolutely inconsequential. Chances are Falk's part was bigger in the original script but was trimmed for reasons we may never know.

THE PRISONER Of GUANTNAMO Dan Fesperman Alfred A. Knopf / 336 pages / $24 The problem with writing a novel whose story is ripped from the headlines is that the headlines keep coming after the novel is published. Obsolescence sets in. But Dan Fesperman knows something about headlines: As a reporter for The Sun he's been responsible for quite a few of them. And he knows something about novels: He's one of the best writers of intelligent thrillers based on contemporary events working today.

WASHINGTON - Every parent is familiar with "motherese," the slow, high-pitched, singsong tone that mothers all over the world use to talk to their babies. You might suppose that this manner of speaking is just a simplified, degenerate form of grown-up language. To the contrary, some scientists think motherese might lie at the root of human language - long ago when our primitive ancestors came down from trees and started to walk on two legs. Dean Falk, the head of the anthropology department at Florida State University in Tallahassee, calls it the "putting the baby down hypothesis."
