Mr. Potter, by Jamaica Kincaid. Farrar, Straus & Giroux. 195 pages. $18. I know it's a thuggish thing to ask, but I wonder how many readers there are, in 2002, for Jamaica Kincaid's prose. Let's start with the first sentence of Mr. Potter, her new novel: "And that day, the sun was in its usual place, up above and in the middle of the sky, and it shone in its usual way so harshly bright, making even the shadows pale, making even the shadows seek shelter; that day the sun was in its usual place, up above and in the middle of the sky, but Mr. Potter did not note this, so accustomed was he to this, the sun in its usual place, up above and in the middle of the sky" That's not the whole sentence, but it is more than half, and I wonder how many readers there are, in 2002, for that brand of lyricism, that repetition, in rhythm and word choice, with which Kincaid attempts to re-create consciousness itself, and resurrect her dead father, the titular Mr. Potter, whom she never knew.

Fall isn't just for mums anymore. Those round mounds of yellow, rust or purple are a poor way to celebrate the luxurious Mid-Atlantic fall - and ease a gardener's itch to plant something. Now is the time to refresh decorative garden pots with a rich variety of color and hardiness that can carry their beauty beyond the first frost. "Fall is a missed opportunity," said Kerry Michaels, who writes about container gardening at about.com. "The plants are on sale; it lasts so much longer than a flower arrangement.

PBS begins a summer season of its celebrated Mystery! series tomorrow night, and the best way to describe its theme might be: When it comes to murder, there is nothing like a dame. Dame Diana Rigg not only serves as host of the series, but returns July 13 in The Mrs. Bradley Mysteries as Adela Bradley, the ultra-chic psychologist-sleuth in the chauffeur-driven Rolls-Royce. Any lineup with Rigg in it is a winner, but she's not the only lady of high style who will be gracing the public airwaves this summer in Mystery!

You don't need to be a scratch golfer to enjoy Mountain Branch Grille & Pub. Though the restaurant is located on the grounds of Mountain Branch Golf Club in Joppa, it is open to golfers and non-golfers alike (the course is open to the public, too, and golf memberships are also available). It's no surprise that Mountain Branch is a popular spot for weddings: The space - with exposed rafters, stone accents and enormous windows overlooking the course - is jaw-dropping. Fortunately, the food and service are just as impressive.

NEW YORK -- Fashion shows are performances of perfection. On the runway, gorgeous girl after gorgeous girl comes strolling down, expertly turned out from her perfect hair to her perfect feet. It would seem that it takes hours to produce so much loveliness and precision. But just as one leggy beauty rounds the bend to head backstage, and the audience has oohed and aahed their approval of the model behind her, less than two minutes later, there's that first model again - this time in a different ensemble.

Hostel starts off as the best dang Eurotrip two American guys, and their new buddy from Iceland, could ever dream of, then turns into a nightmare of sadism, murder and revenge. Which is too bad for them, but pretty satisfying for those who like to just groove on decadence and mayhem in the safety of a good ol' multiplex. Paxton (Jay Hernandez) and Josh (Derek Richardson) are hanging with the wackazoid Nordic giant Oli (Eythor Gudjonsson) in Amsterdam when a creepy guy tells them about an extra-special hostel in remote Slovakia, where the women are all gorgeous and melt at American accents.

What started as a way to promote new business hours is now a highly anticipated weekly event at the 13-year-old salon. "We basically started it as something to drum up business on a new day of the week we were open, which was Tuesdays," says Leeza Rainey, owner of the salon. "So we started the martini night and found it was super-successful. " On Tuesdays, clients can enjoy a signature hot pink "Envy-tini," which Rainey describes as both sweet and tart.

Getting a new home, whether it's a house, condo or an apartment, is usually pretty cut and dried. You go to an office, sign paperwork and the place is yours. No big deal, no fanfare. When Deborah Robertson got the keys to her new condo, a 35th-floor luxury unit in the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago, it was a big deal. Three TV crews, reporters, photographers, family members and dozens of well-wishers were watching. Robertson, of Baltimore, was the winner of HGTV's Urban Oasis contest.

Back in August, when news got out that the Lost City Diner had opened, a town full of cynics said, "Aw, you're pulling my leg!" But "Gee whiz!" folks sighed when they got a peek inside the new Charles North corner diner. "She's a beauty. " In development for what seemed like an eternity, the Lost City Diner stands as Joy Martin's tribute to the epitome of American interior design and to the enduring appeal of vintage science-fiction illustration. The results ravish. The interior showcases Martin's impeccable eye for salvageable material and her impressive skills at shepherding the stable of artists who have contributed original works to the restaurant.

Ah, the quintessential time-honored family road trip. Maui's Road to Hana? Sure, a nice family drive. The breathtaking Mount Blanc circuit of France, Italy and Switzerland? Without doubt, a family bucket list candidate. But for my tastes nothing can hold a candle to the diamond ring of family circuit routes. Leaving from Vancouver, British Columbia, this fantabulous trip northeast to the Canadian Rockies, then west to the Pacific Ocean and then by ferry back to Vancouver will squeeze reluctant oohs and aahs from the moodiest, most text-addicted teen.

They are being paraded before us, the obese lispers, the sallow Goths. The dwarfs (some even shorter than Ryan Seacrest) and the 6-foot-4-in-stocking-feet female giants. Frizzy-haired, pop-eyed, snaggle-toothed, they grooved on last Wednesday's episode of American Idol to the Pussycat Dolls' song "Don't Cha." Don't cha wish your girlfriend was hot like me. ... This is supposed to be hilarious because, you see, these people are not hot - most are quite the opposite. The early weeks of the talent competition's open tryouts have become a televised ugly pageant, complete with vicious insults from the snickering judges.
