The women of the book club to which I belong read "The Bridges of Madison County" and so it made sense that we see the movie together.We knew we should not have liked that book. Critics threw it across the room and started yelling. To see the movie would xTC compound our simple-mindedness. But we looked at it as an academic exercise. Sort of a field trip. We would pack tissues instead of a boxed juice drink.But Betsy's husband had a night meeting and she couldn't go. Nan had to attend the graduation ceremonies at the school where she is a teacher.

The culture wars have caught an unlikely target in their cross-fire, the wildly popular book-turned-movie, ''The Bridges of Madison County.'' ''Bridges'' is being bombed by both conservatives and feminists.Echoing presidential candidate Bob Dole's recent salvo against Hollywood, a Chicago Tribune op-ed piece by law professor Douglas Kmiec blasted the sensuous story of a four-day extramarital affair between Francesca, an Iowa farm-wife (played by Meryl Streep), and Robert, a world-travelling, free-spirited photographer (Clint Eastwood)

Holland to the killing of his ex-wife, whom he met while she was a prison volunteer and he was doing time for rape and robbery.In opening statements in David Holland's murder trial, Assistant State's Attorney Robin Coffin said that when police found Francesca A. Holland's strangled body in the trunk of her car outside David Holland's Essex home in February, they also found his fingerprints and a hat belonging to her ex-husband in the car.Blood taken from a coat he wore also is likely Francesca Holland's, Coffin said.

"The Bridges of Madison County" is as good as it is because of its performances. It's as bad as it is because of its source.In case you've been living under a rock, the plot of "The Bridges of Madison County" goes like this: Rugged individualistic photographer taking pictures of covered bridges in Iowa has affair with Italian-American farm wife that isn't just an affair, but the eternal love of a lifetime, even though it lasts only four days.Your faithful critic has to get her personal "Bridges" book bias out of the way. In spite of myself, I was moved by Robert James Waller's manipulative novel when, at the end, it tacked on its "proof" that his characters shared true love.

"Knick Knack Paddy Whack," by Ardal O'Hanlon. Henry Holt. 244 pages. $23. I wanted to love this book and thought that I would; thought that the sentence you are now reading would say: I love this book. I don't. Except for frequent humor -- the work of a successful Irish stand-up comic navigating his first novel -- I barely liked it. Not because it didn't promise a good read (much of the material involves characters my own age going through a similar time and trials if not place), but because it failed to deliver that promise.

There are songs that come free from the green, chemically treated grass, from the blackened gravel of a thousand interstate highways. This is one of them.*Francesca watched intently as the pickup slowly pulled into her driveway. Out stepped a man, lithe and lean-muscled and looking like some vision from a never-written book on the gods. She felt her heart quicken."Robert Kincaid!" she cried."Name's Peterson, ma'am," he said.He pointed to the neat lettering on the side door of the Ford Ranger: Walt Peterson Pest Control -- Free Consultation and Estimates.
