Middlesex, by Jeffrey Eugenides. Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 544 pages, $27. When you are a writer and your name is Eugenides, you can be forgiven for showcasing the mention of your name in T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land: "Mr. Eugenides, the Smyrna merchant, unshaven, with a pocketful of currants, asked me in demotic French to luncheon at the Cannon Street Hotel." But to build a novel around the passage's mostly obscured meaning, as our Mr. Eugenides seems to have done, is ill-advised, and too ambitious.

Edward Cozzolino pulls no punches: "Money can buy quality education," says the principal of Baltimore County's Middlesex Elementary School.Well-spent money, that is, coupled with what he calls "the world's best teaching staff."That formula is making Middlesex work -- and making it stand out among the 94 Baltimore County schools that raised their scores this year on state achievement tests. Middlesex, in the county's eastern section, nearly tripled its score, jumping from a composite average of 18.9 to 55.8.

A powerful bomb ripped apart a van near an Essex shopping center yesterday evening, killing five people and shaking homes "like an earthquake."Three children, a man and a woman were killed in the explosion behind the Middlesex Shopping Center, their body parts scattered with bits of the vehicle as far as 300 yards away.The victims' identities were not immediately divulged. Late last night, federal and county investigators were looking into the possibility that the blast was linked to a domestic dispute.

Four times a week, retirees Barbara and Homer Woods travel from Oliver Beach to Essex on Baltimore County's gritty east side to roll duckpins at a bowling alley that has become a community fixture during its nearly four decades.At the same alley, Jennifer Cirri, an 18-year-old with spina bifida, maneuvers her wheelchair to position herself for a strike -- fingers crossed for good luck.But dwindling business at Middlesex AMF on Eastern Boulevard means that the alley -- a recreational haven for families, the elderly, and the physically and mentally challenged -- will close this summer, after being in operation since 1959.

WASHINGTON -- The intelligent and brash choreography of New York-based Stephen Petronio is not for the faint of heart. You either love it or hate it, but you can't ignore it.At the Kennedy Center Terrace Theater last weekend, Mr. Petronio gave a sampling of his choreography and his strong dancers in "The King is Dead," "MiddleSex Gorge," "Full Half Wrong" and a new solo performed by Mr. Petronio, "No. 3.""MiddleSex Gorge," danced to the punk rock music of Wire, separated the fans from the idly curious.

When Edward Cozzolino became principal of Middlesex Elementary in 1993, the school's test scores were among the worst in Baltimore County. When he left in 1997, Middlesex was a National Blue Ribbon School. When Cozzolino arrived to take over nearby Shady Spring Elementary in Rosedale in 1999, the school was struggling academically and with behavior problems. Troublemakers often were lined up outside the office, and pupils routinely banged their fists against the partitions that serve as classroom walls.

Rick Bauer thinks the vows might go something like this: "To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part or the food coupons run out."Bauer will officiate at a 14-couple wedding on a red carpeted stage in front of Metro Food Market Nov. 5 at 8: 45 a.m. as part of the Middlesex store's grand opening -- an unusual promotional gimmick that lured the couples down the aisles with $1,000 in groceries and a free honeymoon.
