December 23,10:35 P.M.: Coming home on the subway after a full day of work, I was exhausted and grumpy. To avoid dozing off, missing my stop, and further fueling my mood, I took out my brandnew copy of Esquire and flipped to "The 1998 Dubious Achievement Awards."

A friend of ours died toward the end of last year. In fact, he died on Christmas Day. His name was Mike McAlary. He was forty-one. I didn’t know Mike very well. We talked here in the offices a number of times, we saw each other at the occasional event, and I was glad that he invited deputy editor Peter Griffin and me to the party celebrating his Pulitzer prize last year.

More than anything, Dreamland (HarperCollins, $26) is a novel about love—love and kindness, generosity and endurance, in spite of it all. Dickensian in scope and intellectual breadth, Kevin Baker’s (dare it be said?) masterpiece is Ragtime but without the sprawling misanthropy; Tom Wolfe but with characters that are human, not merely theoretical; Dreiser but superbly written; Sinclair Lewis but with a mystic’s heart.

It's easy to make some kind of odious joke about cheerleaders, but don't. It's more fun to try, believe it or not, to understand them. And James T. McElroy does just that with a bunch of cheerleaders, a whole team of them, in his entertaining and well-reported book, We've Got Spirit:

Didn’t cause anyone any trouble. Mild mannered. Quiet. This is what they say, after the rampage, of the inconspicuous monster next door, isn’t it? This is also what someone who’s driven the popular Volkswagen Passat would say, not that the Passat would ever go postal.

It is not often that Esquire makes note of art exhibitions, but then, photographer Ellen von Unwerth's "Original Sin" (of which this photo is a part) isn't exactly a French-impressionist retrospective at the Musée d'Orsay. The twenty-fivephoto show—which opens in New York this month at the Staley-Wise Gallery before moving on to Austin, L. A., and New Orleans—takes as its inspiration E. J. Bellocq's earlytwentieth-century photos of Storyville prostitutes.

It's the stuff of rucksacks and rugged army duffels, canvas is. it's used for sails and to batten down hatches and to keep clowns in under the big top and the elements out, and that's why it's so unusual to see it in finely finished bags and packs like those shown here, unusual, but not bad. Think of these pieces as fully adult versions of the more common jewel-colored, sneaker-logo-studded nylon carryalls:

Musical genius founds impossibly influential group with abusive fatherbrothers-cousin-friends, overdoes everything, makes masterpiece, records even more ambitious follow-up, goes mental, falls under spell of shady “therapist,” is pretty much written off as another sad-sack former rock star.

You probably don’t go around looking for beauty and meaning in men’s rooms. But then, you’re not New Jersey photographer Ken Ross. Understand, it’s not as if the guy’s on a quest for truth in his friendly neighborhood john. When Ross pulls out his trusty Mamiya RB67 for his work in progress, “Men’s Rooms,” it’s to document the places guys go off to tinker or to hang with other guys.

When Richard Branson called Esquire right before his last unsuccessful attempt at lighter-than-air circumnavigation of the globe, we were interested in only one thing. Knowing how interminable an eighthour transatlantic flight can be for us, we wanted the skinny on how the founder of Virgin Atlantic Airways and the veteran of four long-distance balloon flights killed time while airborne for days.

John Mariani
It seems to me that the competition is over, and we've got the bragging rights: The U. S. A. is now the gastronomic center of the world. I say this not because France, Italy, Spain, and Japan haven't legitimate claim to the title but because right now the U. s. is far more influential—both at the haute-cuisine and casual-dining levels—with far more diversity, excitement, and modernity in our restaurants than in the rest of the world's combined.

IT WAS A GOOD YEAR FOR THIS PORTFOLIO. The $10,000 investment enriched the mother company by some $1,800. (If you're new to Green, I received a $10K chunk from Esquire on December 31, 1997, and began managing the scratch as if it were my own—which, alas, it is not.

LAST SUMMER, Steven Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan surfed on the sort of hype that transcends its own nature— hype with a halo. Newsweek's cover story led with the hag gard recollections of real-life Normandy vets, practically obliging moviegoers to thread their popcorn into a rosary.

HISTORY SPEAKS as it is made: Invasion of the Body Snatchers—that fable of alien seedpods devouring their human hosts and replacing them with an entire society of soulless replicants—is a tale we will not escape any time soon. First taking shape on film almost forty-five years ago, in 1956, the persistence of the story implies that the fifties remain the haunted house of the American century.

AT THE AGE OF FORTY-ONE, I am returning to school and having to think of myself as what my French textbook calls “a true debutant.” After paying my tuition, I was issued a student ID, which allows me a discounted entry fee at movie theaters, puppet shows, and Festyland, a far-flung amusement park that advertises with billboards picturing a cartoon stegosaurus sitting in a canoe and eating what appears to be a ham sandwich.

For the past several years, Spencer Cox, who is thirty years old, has lived behind a dam built to contain the catastrophe that is the most threatening virus of our time. It is a dam made of drugs designed to keep him from dying of AIDS. Diagnosed at the age of nineteen, Cox, a southerner who lives in Manhattan, became involved with the Treatment Action Group, which put him in daily touch with the cutting edge of HIV science.

Her first minute on the set of Homicide: Life on the Street, Michael Michele marched up to Yaphet Kotto, the cast’s alpha male, and wagged a finger in his clenched fist of a face. "You don’t scare me," she told him. Kotto smiles at the memory. It’s four months later, and the actor is lollygagging between takes in the converted Baltimore rec center that serves as the Homicide squad room.

THE GENTLEMANLY V-NECK There are two different styles of long-sleeved V-neck. There's the one with the plunging neckline that, when worn with nothing underneath, frames a nice patch of pectoral fringe. And then there's the less generous but much more gentlemanly high V-neck that, even when worn with nothing underneath, exposes no chest hair at all (unless you're George "the Animal" Steele, in which case you can turn the page, because you don't need a sweater at all, since you've already got your own built right in). It is the high V-neck that most men want.

One Saturday night, after a certain amount had been drunk, I walked a little ways into the backyard to look at the moon, which was full again, a big, orange harvest moon. I was indulging in a little blessing counting, I confess, under the piney woods of Tallahassee, Florida with a loving wife, good company I could rejoin in a moment, and the comforts of music, wine, and abundant food&mdash;a lifestyle granted to me by vast historical forces and sheer blind luck (&quot;You Americans have all the money,&quot; you once said)&mdash;and I heard your voice, Danzel, the castaway caretaker cook of French Louis Caye, reciting a tone poem of resonating pathos.
