September's revelation is Chang-rae Lee's "A Gesture Life" (Riverhead, 288 pages, $23.95). "People know me here," Kurohata, a Japanese immigrant of Korean descent, begins. A retired proprietor of a surgical supply store, he remains grateful that the Westchester community of Bedley Run has welcomed him. The word "kurohata" means black flag, a clue that this is no novel of domestic accommodation. Flashbacks, reminiscent of those employed by the Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami in "The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle," soon transport the reader to a Japanese camp during World War II.Known in America as "Mr. Hata," Kurohata was in Japan a poor Korean belonging to the outcast group called "burakumin," tanners and grave diggers, hereditary workers at society's unspeakable jobs, and a word Chang-rae Lee never uses, as his character would not. Eagerly he renounced his parents to be adopted by the Kurohatas and raised as a Japanese.

GIRLS BASKETBALL PLAYER OF THE YEAR Tameka McDonald Aberdeen, senior There were players in the county who made it look easier and prettier, but nobody did it better than McDonald. The fearless, 5-foot-1 point guard slashed her way to a league-leading 16.8 points a game and handed out two assists per game, combining with senior forward Rudi Johnson to form the most formidable duo in the area. Hardly one-dimensional, Johnson, a second-team selection last year, was also a force on the defensive end, recording four steals and five rebounds a game, often starting the Eagles' transition game.

When Edgewood girls basketball coach Fred Hammett saw Lemaire Dargan in mid-November, the last thing he expected was for the senior to be back on the court anytime soon. Just two weeks before, Dargan was in a four-car accident in Bel Air that left her with a sprained ankle, a hairline fracture in her hip, along with back and neck problems. A doctor told Dargan, 17, that she might be sidelined until early February. "Just watching her walk was painful," said Hammett, who is in his first year as varsity coach after two seasons of leading the Rams' JV. "She was on crutches and walking so awkwardly.

It's early, but veteran Southern-Harwood boys basketball coach Tom Albright has that twinkle in his eye that hints he has a team capable of making that coveted trip to Cole Field House in March for the state tournament. Southern (3-2), the county's only Class 2A team, dropped a tough 66-60 decision at No. 8-ranked Annapolis (4-1) on Monday night. Leading until there was 1:50 left in the fast-paced game, the Bulldogs put themselves in position to upset the Class 3A Panthers. They lost but proved they are going to be dangerous against the higher classification teams.
