REUBEN’S BURNING QUESTIONS     

In Shelly Reuben’s latest mystery, "The Skirt Man" (Harcourt, $24), it becomes tragically clear that a man should not be judged by his sartorial choices but by his actions. Comment

SPACE CADETS     

Earth is left behind as dancers explore outer space in a theatrical performance that actually started out as an idea for a theme party. Comment

SWEET!

It took six years of wholesaling her cookies before Dawn Casale founded a retail outlet. She opened her Cobble Hill shop, One Girl Cookie, in November 2005.

Italian director Michelangelo Antonioni was not a wunderkind like Orson Welles, Francois Truffaut or Terrence Malick, whose first films were instant classics. Comment
