IN OUR May 1980 issue, Esquire celebrated the beauty of athletic women in our cover story, “In Praise of Women’s Muscles,” by John Casey. This year we wanted to provide an opportunity for a woman to evaluate the male body, and the result is our cover story, “Body Parts” (page 35), by Esquire executive editor Priscilla Flood.

I MUST commend Frank Rose’s honest and sensitive treatment of modern youth (“Welcome to the Modem World,” April). I am a prototypical new (un)American. Frank Rose is completely correct in saying that we feel polarized. We are numb, but we feel with all the intensity of youth.

TODAY, MAGAZINE reading is a part of your life that you take for granted—one of the predictable pleasures of your adult years. Chances are, though, that you were already a magazine reader back when you were nine and ten and eleven. You probably don’t remember it right offhand, but every month there was a magazine you waited for the mailman to deliver.

“GOOD LORD,” said my friend who has been holed up in Paris for six years, “what the hell is going on over there?” He paused, and for a long moment there was only the hum of the transatlantic line. “Every morning’s Trib brings word of another atrocity,” he continued.

JAMES WOLCOTT
“KA-VETCH, KA-VETCH, ka-vetch,” drawls Sally Field with a mocking air in Norma Rae, and it’s a bit of sarcasm one feels like flipping at Philip Roth’s head while skating through his latest novel, Zuckerman Unbound (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, $10.95).

LET AUTHORS GATHER and you will hear from them the horrors of the promotion tour. It is not enough for the author to write his book; he must venture forth with a list of TV and radio shows to hawk it. He may do six shows in a day in one city and repeat that performance the next day in another city.

Some of the Finest Christian People You'll Ever Want to Meet
The folks of Cocke County, Tennessee, are quick to tell you that they live in as pretty a spot as there is in the Smokies. They are less likely to point out that their county just may be the most dangerous place in the country—especially for a stranger

NO ONE COMES to Cocke County, Tennessee, much. Now and again a John Deere salesman will pass through, or a North Carolina-bound trucker will pull in off the Interstate for diesel, but that’s about the extent of it. Oh, a tourist or two will come by, but they’ll stop only to ask directions to Ripley’s Believe It or Not, over the mountain in Gatlinburg.

The Old Man and the River
For forty-two years, Norman Maclean taught English literature to college students. And in the summers he would come home to Montana to the woods and the water and the things he loved best. When he was seventy-three, he brought the words and the Montana summers together into a slim novel called A River Runs Through It. It was a perfect union

HANS FANTEL
THE ENERGY CRUNCH PUT A HEX ON HORSEPOWER, AND REVVING UP AT THE LIGHT IS NO LONGER A MARK OF SAVOIR FAIRE. This leaves a void. Other ego satisfactions must be found, and music has come to the rescue. Add to this factor the American propensity to regard the automobile as an extension of the home, a chromed appendage of one’s persona, an occasional mating ground, and a general passkey to fantasized freedom, and you have abundant reasons why car stereo is the hottest thing in audio these days—and at a time when most of the auto industry can’t seem to get out of reverse.
