Specimen Days: A Novel By Michael Cunningham. Farrar, Straus and Giroux. 308 pages. $24. The only decent being left standing on planet Earth at the close of Michael Cunningham's provocative and disturbing new novel, Specimen Days, is an android. It's the 22nd century and justice in America is a distant, fading memory. Cunningham's premise is that books should disturb and undermine the reader's accommodation to an intolerable social order.

Roger W. Straus Jr., 87, a Guggenheim heir who co-founded one of the great publishing houses of the 20th century, died Tuesday of pneumonia at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan, according to his son, Roger Straus III. The longtime head of Farrar, Straus & Giroux, he was among the last of the true old-fashioned publishers. He ran his own company for more than half a century, holding on even as the book world evolved from a small, clannish community to an increasingly impersonal, money-minded business.

An interview with Dan Ryan of The Bookies, a book club run by First Place Singles, a Columbia Association-sponsored singles club. What book are members reading this month? "The Hours" by Michael Cunningham. Which books have members liked? "The Poisonwood Bible" by Barbara Kingsolver, "The Reader" by Bernhard Schlink, "Charming Billy" by Alice McDermott and "Cold Mountain" by Charles Frazier. "The Poisonwood Bible" was very interesting because [Kingsolver] wrote each one of the chapters from a different character's point of view, and it was set in the Congo.
