OLINGER STORIES By John Updike, Everyman’s Pocket Classics, $16.00

If you’re not already a fan of John Updike you’ll soon relish his storytelling wizardry in this “auto biographical” collection of beautifully bound short stories: “Everyman’s” hard cover compact editions. The stories, selected by Updike himself, reflect on his life from boy to manhood although his character in each chapter is disguised with a different identity. It’s a perfect gift for seasoned readers as well as newcomers to his delightful prose.



THOMSON Music Chronicles 1940-1954 Edited By Tim Page, The Library of America, $45.00

For any lover of serious music, opera and classical, this is a perfect gift. For 14 years the chief music critic for the New York Herald Tribune, Virgil Thomson, delighted readers with his entertaining and authoritative style. Now, 25 years after his death, Pulitzer Prize-winning music critic Tim Page presents the best of Thomson’s critiques, which interestingly include Thomson’s reviews of Jazz so even non-classical lovers will enjoy.
