<p>I’d like to share a phone message I received from a good friend who happens to be a country singer and who reads Raymond Carver’s poetry to honky-tonk crowds between sets: “You know, you may already know this, but just in case, I’m so excited to share a new Raymond Carver story with you. Are you aware that Esquire magazine is printing—in fact, in the new July issue, with that pretty model on the cover . . . Her name is, uh, Esther Cañadas. July 1999. Exclusive! A newly discovered story by Raymond Carver! It’s so exciting; I just read the story, called ‘Kindling.’ And, man, it’s . . . it’s so special to read a new story from this guy. I mean, my word, it’s like a visit from an old friend.”</p>

We devote a lot of pages in this issue to style. Thirty-six of them. At a time when men in America have extended &ldquo;casual Friday&rdquo; to every day, that&rsquo;s a big commitment. But style is not about wearing some particular uniform. It&rsquo;s about finding the small ways to express pride and individuality.

After enjoying some serious gunplay and a fair amount of wine (in that order) with Hugh Grant for our cover story, &ldquo;The Great Hugh Grant Manhood Test&rdquo; (page 138), contributing editor Ted Allen came away believing the actor is more of a man&rsquo;s man than he purports to be.

&ldquo;There are no second acts in American lives,&rdquo; F. Scott Fitzgerald observed, and promptly died. This half aphorism, found in notes for a never-finished novel, is perhaps the most oft quoted of Fitzgerald&rsquo;s work, largely because it is both trenchant and almost perfectly wrong.

It's not that she really blames anyone for liking to look. And she certainly doesn't regret being the proud owner of those eyes, those lips, those legs, not to mention all the rest of those parts. It's just that the 25-year-old actress, who has worked steadily in her native Spain for the past decade and was one of Esquire's Women We Love this year, wishes more Americans were as familiar with her dramatic range as they are with her stunning physical attributes.

Roll Over, Sam Spade
A WRITER AND HIS ORPHANED ANTIHERO REINVENT THE DETECTIVE NOVEL
[no value]
[no value]
Steve Friedman
One of life&#39;s verities is the literary detective, tough but exquisitely tender, a sad and savvy loner who confronts the existential void, battles his worst instincts to an uneasy standoff, and catches the killer a step or two behind the bemused but appreciative reader, who has come to depend on the form&#39;s predictable pleasures.

Had enough of the Champ? How could you? Somehow the spirit of the Louisville Lip doesn&#39;t dissipate, even after his too-late, Parkinson&#39;s-inspired canonization by bandwagon America. Which is why, when a new book comes out on Muhammad Ali, you&#39;ve got to buy it.

Though it may not be much more than some ruts in an ice-and-snow-ravaged road, the small town of Dawson City (population 2,020) in the Yukon Territory has for the past 22 years hosted one of the most inspired events north of the border: the Great Klondike International Outhouse Race and Bathroom Wall Limerick Contest (this year on September 5).

Civic Improvement
THE CAR THAT SEPARATES THE CUSTOMERS FROM THE CUSTOMIZERS
[no value]
[no value]
Phil Patton
The Model A Ford, the Chevy Nova&mdash;every generation finds a car model that serves as a canvas for the art of customization. Today that car is Honda&#39;s econobox Civic. The American drive for an individual ride has always attached itself to a cheap, rugged car, and so as the production-model Civic has gotten blander, its appeal to customizers has only grown.

Christopher Berend
Okay, even if you&#39;ve never heard of Tricky, the British hip-hop-inspired rapper and producer credited with creating a unique genre of hypnotic and rhythmic music almost by himself, you&#39;ve probably heard him. Blending bits and pieces of dance, hip-hop, soul, rock, and some homemade sounds that are hard to explain, Tricky sharply dismisses categories like hip-hop or trip-hop.

The Sommelier Strikes Back
SLOW SERVICE, SPOILED WINE, AN ARROGANT WAITER—AND HOW TO DEAL WITH ALL THREE

Andrea Immer
<p>So you thought lame restaurant wine service strikes only hapless souls with too much money, too little wine knowledge, and a tendency to crawl under the table rather than to make a stink? Well, think again, my juice-drinking friend. I, your very own guru of grape and grain, was not long ago violated by one of my own gone wrong: a wayward wine waiter, a sorry sommelier.</p>

She has never seen a dog she didn&#39;t like, nor a recipe that would not be improved with an extra stick of butter. You might think. Because in the past three years alone, Marlene Paulson has taken 37 strays into her house in New Orleans and eventually found homes for them all while presiding over her own five head of dubiously parented canines:&nbsp;Sadie, Riggs, Jack, Doc, and Moisheaux&mdash;the latter a &quot;Jewish Cajun,&quot; decrees Paulson&#39;s significant other.

Maybe it was Yugoslavia and the specter of another war on Europe&#39;s doorstep. Or perhaps the clashing Koreas and the unrest in Kashmir. Whatever the impetus, something has force-marched designers (Byblos, Calvin Klein, Cerruti, and the English label Maharishi, among others) to make legions of ARMY-GREEN sweaters, parkas, ponchos, and even suits.

Bad Bear! Bad, Bad Bear!
Four reasons the Dow will hit 15,000
[no value]
[no value]
Ken Kurson
It is now July 1999. The Dow is in the high tens. I believe that by August 2001&mdash;just two years from now&mdash;the Dow will have touched 15,000, a better than 35 percent increase. But wait. I gotta leave the box a little. I&#39;m not gonna start rhyming or discussing my marriage, but there&#39;s no way I can weigh in without acknowledging the incredibly dubious history of magazines making market predictions&mdash;from Money&#39;s infamous August &#39;97 &quot;Sell Stock Now!&quot;&nbsp;cover to the virtually flawless correlation of a newsweekly&#39;s bull cover and a sudden market tumble.

Half the year down and this portfolio is more than three times better than the S&amp;P 500. That&#39;s nice. Prepare for the launch of the My War mutual fund, free checking and lollipops. The Fed raised a hair but remained a friend to the market by adopting a neutral stance.

CHARLES P. PIERCE
<p>“Shoot,” says Peyton Manning, “I’m <em>real</em> tired of the Golden Boy stuff.” There is a quizzical bend in the middle of that “shoot,” a little hesitation that indicates Manning might well have gone for the gold here, choosing the more common expletive for which “shoot” is standing in.</p>

The Golf Club at Mansion Ridge, Monroe, New York. The rap on Jack Nicklaus has always been that he designs courses that only he could play: long, demanding tracks that call for a combination of strength and finesse with the long sticks that few golfers possess.&nbsp;Mansion Ridge is the answer to that criticism. Yes, it can play long, and yes, it&#39;s demanding, but just about every hole gives a golfer an out, a choice of (a) trying to hit the shot Jack would hit or (b) playing like a mortal.

In the end, though, the thief absconded with only three things: a lucky duffel bag that I'd hauled all over the world, the pair of black leather shoes I got married in, and the stack of CDs I'd set aside for this story—eleven of the greatest albums of the nineties.</p>

TED ALLEN
Well, yeah, he's built kind of like a jockey, all five foot eight of him, all 150 pounds of him, all twenty-seven years of him. He's from California, he's squeaky and clean-cut like a Dothan, Alabama, TV reporter, he calls his crew the Rainbow Warriors, he likes Celine Dion better than C&W, and he won't shuck the helmet if there's a camera around—fussy about the hairdo.

More leather than at a Hells Angels rally, no? More than at a gay-pride parade, too, and almost none of it with studs. Such is the state of skins these days, and if the variety of objects on these two pages is any indication, leather&#39;s popularity has expanded.
