Vanity Fair has joined the star-of-the-month club. Like Rolling Stone and other publications surrendering to the time-lapse 1990s, VF is now willing to lend its cover to ephemeral celebrities like Courtney Love, Keanu Reeves, Brad Pitt and Nicole Kidman. It no longer caters solely to the superstar set. For the September issue, Sandra Bullock is flashing her crocodile smile in the front window -- an appropriate reaction to being dubbed "Golden Girl" and "America's Sweetheart" after only three ordinary movies, "Speed," "While You Were Sleeping" and "The Net."

Sex and the Seasoned Woman: Pursuing the Passionate Life Gail Sheehy Random House / 368 pages / $25.95 Before sitting down to write what I hoped would be a thoughtful and penetrating assessment of Gail Sheehy's new sociological study of the romantic lives of women over 45, I decided to ask a few members of the target demographic what they thought of the title, Sex and the Seasoned Woman: Pursuing the Passionate Life. I already knew how I felt. As someone on the cusp of 45, I do not enjoy being likened, even in an indirect way, to a ham. Other women I spoke to also found the moniker "seasoned woman" distasteful, irritating, or just plain silly.

"Hillary's Choice" by Gail Sheehy (Random House, 389 pages, $23.95).Anyone who suffers from the delusion that President Clinton's wife is a simple or forthrightly understandable person has not being paying attention for the last seven years and more. Gail Sheehy makes no such error in seeking to present the full dimension of this complex and often contrary lawyer, mother, wife and candidate for the U.S. Senate for a state in which she has never lived. There will be millions of words more written about Mrs. Clinton in the next year -- or month.

Middletown, America: One Town's Passage From Trauma to Hope, by Gail Sheehy. Random House. 448 pages. $24.95. The appeal of Middletown, N.J., in reality and as metaphor, is immediately obvious. This leafy suburb just a ferry ride from Manhattan was the classic nice-place-to-raise-a-family for those who worked at the World Trade Center. On Sept. 11, 2001, though, some 50 area residents of this felicitously named community were among the stockbrokers, firefighters and others who died in the terrorist attack.

If you've got a yen to quiz attorney Christopher Darden about the O.J. Simpson trial or to talk fiction with writers Barbara Taylor Bradford and Jackie Collins, you can do it -- if you can write a big enough check.It costs $300 just for a chance to hobnob with any author, or $2,500 to chow down with the author of your choice, but the money is going to a good cause: children's reading programs throughout the Los Angeles County library system. Volunteer hosts will each welcome well-known authors and 10 to 24 paying guests for an evening.

THE SECOND anniversary of Sept. 11 approaches, and the weatherman promises East Coast residents that the day will be as blue, as mild and as sunny as that first Sept. 11. Americans, except for those who lost loved ones that day, have returned to normal - or "the new normal," as some have called it. But it will be a long time - a generation perhaps - before a perfect fall day does not send an echo of fear through us, and leave us with a vague feeling of loss. 9/11 is part of who we are now. The terrorists did more than get our attention that day. They destroyed the American daydream - of invincibility, of security, of righteousness, of innocence, of an unending string of tomorrows stretching out to the horizon.
