He was 98 and had lived in Towson. Before coming to Baltimore during World War II to work for the Office of Price Administration, Mr. Lazarus was a high school English and math teacher for 10 years in Belington, W.Va.

"The Lazarus Rumba," by Ernesto Mestre. Picador. 486 pages. $27.50.Ernesto Mestre's first novel, "The Lazarus Rumba," is a challenging -- no, exhausting -- book that nearly drove me mad with the demands it made, but once I understood that it wasn't a book I could read in 10- or 15-minute blocks, and once I understood that it wasn't a book to feed my bottomless appetite for bemused riffs on contemporary U.S. pop culture, and once I understood that it wasn't a book structured in generic deference to the narrative default of movies and TV shows, I found myself reading with the kind of deliberation and concentration I hadn't needed since I read Proust's "In Search of Lost Time."

Fred Lazarus has made many great contributions to Baltimore, but perhaps one of his lesser known and appreciated ones is raising the bar for high quality architectural design, as represented by the Brown Center and the Gateway student dorm building on the Maryland Institute College of Art campus ("MICA's Fred Lazarus to retire in 2014 after guiding art school for 35 years," April 30). Those buildings serve as inspirations for the rest of Baltimore. Excellent design is a vital element for raising the spirits of residents, workers and visitors alike.

To understand what Fred Lazarus accomplished during his 35 years as president of the Maryland Institute College of Art , one need only look at the gleaming concrete-and-glass structure housing the school's Brown Center for new media. The rakishly angled building rising above the school's Mount Royal Avenue campus symbolizes the future of both art and higher education in America as surely as the stately neoclassical building across the street from it reflects its past. Mr. Lazarus, who announced this week that he will step down as president in 2014, had the genius to see that future and the skill to build it in Baltimore.

As President Fred Lazarus IV expanded the Maryland Institute College of Art over the past 35 years and helped turn it into one of the nation's leading arts colleges, supporters say, he has also focused on Baltimore - to the betterment of his college and his city. Lazarus, 71, announced Monday that he would retire in May 2014. Upon hearing the news, the city's cultural and civic leaders praised his foresight, saying he realized early on that improving life both in Baltimore and at the 187-year-old school went hand-in-hand.

Megan and Don's relationship has come to a placeĀ that marksĀ a new beginning -- or a marriage's end. So Megan has decided to quit Sterling Cooper Draper Price (and Don's workplace control). Yes, she seems to be a born salesperson, a natural creative type that can charm the pants off of a hardened Heinz executive (plus she's, you know, smart and has good ideas). But what she really wants to do is act. After last episode's confrontation with her dissapointed father, her ditching SCDP should come as no surprise.

Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds -- Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! (Anti) A funny thing happened to Nick Cave on the way to Goth Heaven. He remembered his past, fronting Australia's Birthday Party, the most intense bunch of post-punks who committed mayhem to vinyl. Last year's Grinderman project, a glorious blast of deranged garage blues, lifted the headstone on a history almost buried by sedate latter-day Cave outings. This CD is even more entertainingly disturbing. Cave's tight wire between sacred and profane is taut as ever; witness his modern recasting of Lazarus as an unwilling resurrectee on the title track, and "Albert Goes West" sounds like the payoff on the twisted Americana Cave has been crafting his whole career.
