Sexual promiscuity fueled by alcohol and drug use led one 47-year-old Towson man to contract HIV. But when he heard about government approval of the drug Truvada to lower people's risk of getting the disease, he wasn't completely sold on it as a lifesaver. The man, who didn't want to be identified because he hasn't told some family members he is HIV-positive, worries that such a pill could end up encouraging risk-taking. "If you're going to make something readily available to people that already engage in high-risk behavior, are you not saying then that we condone this high-risk behavior, which will then add fuel to the fire?"

The federal government has approved for the first time a drug that can prevent an HIV infection, a significant development for Baltimore where transmission rates for the virus remain high and growing. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Truvada in 2004 to treat HIV, but on Monday said it can also be used to increase the odds of stopping the disease from taking hold in high-risk people such as gay men, IV drug users and sex workers "Today's approval marks an important milestone in our fight against HIV," said Dr. Margaret A. Hamburg, FDA commissioner, in a statement.

Gilead by Marilynne Robinson. Farrar, Straus and Giroux. 247 pages. $23. Sometimes we get the book we need. Was that what Marilynne Robinson had in mind all the time, why she waited 23 years after her splendid debut novel, Housekeeping, to grace us with this, her second? Did she anticipate this moment of religious chauvinism, this era when the God who gets all the publicity is the one selected as front man for hostility, violence, bigotry and perfect games thrown by the home team pitcher?

HAIFA, Israel -- Much ado is being made about the fact that the Syrians and the Israelis are finally talking face-to-face about making peace with each other, but Gershon Gilead remembers similar talks that concluded with an armistice more than 50 years and two major wars ago. At the time, Gilead recalls, a full peace treaty seemed possible within a year or two. "We were all of the same opinion. This was a milestone on the road to peace," he says. In his apartment overlooking the Mediterranean, Gilead, 79, keeps a symbol of that hope, which only now holds the promise of fulfillment.

A young woman is released from prison at the beginning of The Spitfire Grill, the small-scale musical receiving a lilting, uplifting Maryland premiere at Fell's Point Corner Theatre. Percy Talbott has chosen to serve her parole in Gilead, Wis., a rural town she picked out of a travel magazine. Although the town is named for a biblical setting where David found refuge, the people Percy meets in its Midwestern namesake are in prisons of their own. Hannah, the gruff widow who runs the Spitfire and reluctantly employs Percy, is trapped by the desolation left by her husband's death and the missing-in-action status of her soldier son, Eli. Her nephew, Caleb, is imprisoned by his inability to live up to Eli's heroic example, and Caleb's wife Shelby is imprisoned by her husband's discontent.

The recent publication of Marilynne Robinson's Gilead has drawn attention to that unusual but not unprecedented phenomenon: the great first novel that becomes an instant classic and awakens our appetite for more, only to be followed by years of silence. We who loved the miraculous first book, Housekeeping (1980), have been left in a state of suspended longing and need, just like the characters in the novel. In the intervening decades Robinson has written essays, book reviews and two non-fiction books, Mother Country (1989)
