I’m just awakening from an approximately twenty-five-year memory lapse. While standing in a check-out line at a grocery store, I saw it! The Dubious Achievement Awards (January) brought memories of young adulthood flooding back. It dawned on me that I got into my forties not via health foods and positive thinking, but via biting sarcasm.

OUR COVER STORY this month proceeds from the startling observation that inside every man and woman is a collection of organs, bones, and muscles that seem, to a lesser or greater degree, to be either older than or junior to the age attested to on their owner’s driver’s license.

Fools for Gold

Lawrence J. Gallagher
IF THE GREAT gold rush of 1898 was a fascinating slice of history, it was also a nightmare, and getting there was half the dream. I am thinking about this as I make my way up the near-vertical slide of boulders that will bring me to the top of Chilkoot Pass, 3,500 feet above sea level and the beginning of the Chilkoot trail.

Daniel Okrent
TRYING TO PICK the best records made by America’s greatest composer/performer tends to make you crazy. The Schwann catalog lists 108 Duke Ellington albums on thirty labels, and you probably couldn’t rate more than a dozen as less than very, very good.

STAND UP for perestroika! Support the strivings of Soviet republics for nationalist autonomy! Cover yourself politically while covering your floors! Such are the multitudinous appeals of Soviet rugs, available here for the first time since Uncle Harry and Uncle Joe agreed at Potsdam to disagree.

A. J. McClane
JULES VERNE probably discouraged generations of Americans from dining on calamari because of that melodramatic episode in Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, in which a giant squid attacks the Nautilus. For that matter, quite a few horror stories by French authors left the impression that this ten-armed cephalopod mollusk was anything but a passive creature.

A Little Wheat to Beat the Heat

Patrick Hurley
AS THE HOT breath of summer slowly exhales over Germany, beer drinkers from Schleswig-Holstein to Baden-Baden reach for the light that’s right: wheat beer. If this sounds faddish, the next ridiculous step after oat bran, it’s not. For generations, German brewers have added wheat to the standard barley mash to produce a beer that’s light-bodied yet full-flavored, with the merest hint of hop bitterness.

John Berendt
BACK IN 1954, Mercedes took a hugely successful racing car, the 300SL, and with minor changes turned it into a sports car for sale to the public. It caused a sensation. For one thing, it looked like no other car on the road. The doors were hinged at the top, so that when they were open it resembled a bird in flight.

LAURENCE BERGREEN
<p>I BEGAN TO DISCOVER a different side of Samuel Beckett only days before his death last December, when I arrived in Paris to keep an appointment with him at precisely 5:00 in the afternoon. Beckett, I’d been warned, is always prompt, so I’d better be.</p>

JOHN COLAPINTO
The King Edward. Opened in 1903, this elegant Victorian pile somehow survived the orgy of demolitions that since the 1950s has virtually obliterated Toronto’s historic British roots. Rudyard Kipling slept here, and you might believe he still does, when you see the lobby’s colonnaded rotunda, which soars on gargantuan marble pillars to a skylight eighty feet above.

FEW AMERICANS understand the awesome responsibility they shoulder when visiting Toronto. The locals are a skittish, schizophrenic bunch, at once lusting after U.S. approval, yet resenting that lust. For the Yankee concerned not to ruffle feathers, this can mean a delicate balancing act, appearing interested, even enthralled, by things Torontonian, but not so much as to seem patronizing, thus exacerbating the famed Toronto “inferiority complex.”

Toronto’s reputation as bland and flavorless isn’t really deserved. Areas of charm, eccentricity, and color exist, but they’re widely separated. Luckily, the city’s mass transit is clean, safe, and efficient (like everything else about Toronto).

But every day he kept eyeing a forbidden wooden raft out beyond the barrier.</p>

Donald R. Katz
IN THE EARLY FALL of 1983, I hauled off and punched a computer. It was two months after I’d purchased my first machine, and ten minutes after I’d somehow relegated an entire chapter of a book I was writing to the eternal limbo of the data void. My work was gone forever, vaporized because in my abiding naiveté I’d relinquished control to a machine I didn’t understand.
