"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."

This week's assignment: Think of your most intense life experience. Now, dance it out. This particular week on the show ends up dredging up some heart-wrenching stories, making it difficult to judge because of the mixing of emotions and technique. Dancers were challenged to tell a personal story about the most memorable year of their life through their dance. The dance that truly brought tears to my eyes was J.R. Martinez's poignant rumba, inspired by his Army injuries from a landmine explosion in Iraq at age 19. He dedicated the dance to the servicemen and women who don't make it home, set to Tim McGraw's "If You're Reading This.

It's classical night, which means a whole lot of songs I'll recognize but not know the name of. Oh, look, it's an exaggeratedly expressive violinist and some chicks in Marie Antoinette garb. Never change, DWTS, never change. DUDES IN BREECHES AND NECKCLOTHS! Excuse me while I make up historical romance novel cover scenarios for each of these couples. Ooh, that was Joshua Bell? If you've never read Gene Weingarten's excellent Pulitzer-prize winning essay "The Fiddler in the Subway" go do so now, and come back to this recap when you're finished.

For years, Upper Fells Point has been home to a flourishing Latin American scene, with plenty of shops, restaurants and bars. Aside from a few tourist haunts such as Arcos, many of the neighborhood's bars have remained under the radar. That's why, a few weeks ago, several friends and I decided to hit a handful of Latin bars, all within walking distance of each other on or near Broadway. We were going where few outsiders had gone before. Our Latin bar tour showed us a crazy corner of Baltimore's nightlife scene, from servers who barely spoke English to patrons who loved pouring salt into bottled beers.

Kinshasa, Congo -- Under the swirling lights at the nightclub L'Atmosphere, Congolese music's hottest new star is in full swing. "This love was like a novel by Shakespeare," croons Fally Ipupa as his backup singers harmonize and the single-plucked guitars run circles around each other. "You turn it into one by Daniel Dafoe/ I stay isolated like Robinson Crusoe." Fally, as everyone calls him, has a weakness for Americana. His hat of choice is a New York Yankees cap. His jeans ride low in belated emulation of the boxers-baring hip-hop style.

Mario is exhausted. Juggling his R&B career and intense rehearsals for ABC's hit show Dancing With the Stars has left the Baltimore native drained, he said. This past week, he has only been able to practice his dancing routine with partner Karina Smirnoff six hours a day instead of his regular eight to 12 hours. And the pressure is on. "It's starting to get down to the wire," he said. "You've got the last couple of people about to get to the finals pretty soon. This is where I want to be at my best."

Week 3 and tonight's the first night I'll lament not hearing the announcer say "Navratilova" in that special way. And as if that's not sad-making enough, it's "their most memorable year" night. Hope your heartstrings are screwed in tight because they're going to be repeatedly tugged. Jack Wagner & Anna Trebunskaya Jack is glad to be back after some disappointing scores last week. His most memorable year is last year (2011) and he gets choked up before he even starts to tell the story.

1980s fever struck DWTS this week, complete with live performances of "Eternal Flame," "Walk Like an Egyptian" and "Manic Monday" from The Bangles, who also graced the show to promote their NEW album "Sweetheart of the Sun" and tour. Who knew? The theme pretty much ensured this episode would have the worst costumes of the season. And that held true. Neon, crimped hair, side ponytails and lots and lots of eye shadow -- ouch! Consistently nailing it: J.R. Martinez J.R. Martinez danced a fast-paced and technically difficult samba to Gloria Estefan's "Conga.
