Novel Trance By Christopher Sorrentino. Farrar, Straus and Giroux. 528 pages. In 1995, Christopher Sorrentino published Sound on Sound, his first novel, which showed him to be the possessor of gifts few novelists ever acquire. The book focused on a rock band, "Hi-Fi." The first chapter dealt with one night in their existence, the other chapters provided commentary, sometimes contradictory, about the band's prior and subsequent history. Though somewhat repetitive, it was a daring work that demonstrated Sorrentino's extraordinary technical facility, fine eye and ear for detail, and rich sense of humor.

THE capture of Kathleen Soliah, one of the last fugitive members of the Symbionese Liberation Army, seems to have opened a wound that most thought had long since healed. The dying gasps of the saga of the SLA and its 1974 kidnapping of newspaper heiress Patty Hearst were heard only in dusty "on this day in history" pages at the backs of magazines and newspapers.Yet, with Ms. Soliah's capture, the story that gripped the United States 25 years ago has quickly regained its hold.As the Web master of a Web site devoted to Hearst (www.

An interview with Jean Leslie, facilitator of the Third Wednesdays Book Club at the Savage library. How did the club start? It started with a patron, Bobbie Flock, who told me how much she liked to read nonfiction. I decided that she probably wasn't alone. So we started a club that reads literary nonfiction, that is, high-quality writing on interesting issues. The books have all been written within the last 10 years. How has the club been received by the community? We've had good attendance.

Tickets for the Hollywood-style opening of John Waters' new film, "Cecil B. Demented," scheduled for Aug. 2 at the Senator, go on sale today. Filmed in Baltimore last year, "Cecil B. Demented" stars Stephen Dorff as the title character, a guerrilla filmmaker determined to make movies on his own terms, movies that not only buck the Hollywood system, but will lead to the destruction of Hollywood as we know it. Melanie Griffith plays a big-time star who...

Among the Marylanders in the opening-night audience for Hairspray on Broadway last week was our own television icon Rhea Feikin. Rhea covered the big night for her MPT show Artworks This Week. But the experience went way beyond the professional for her. You see, Miss Rhea had a small role in the 1987 John Waters movie on which the new musical is based. And she says seeing its latest incarnation was absolutely fabulous. Rhea also says she, along with John and several others in his group of friends -- including Pat Moran, Ricki Lake and Patty Hearst -- kept using the same word to describe their feeling that night.
