DANIEL WALLACE does not make it easy for any reviewer who wants to avoid ruining the experience of reading his new novel, "Mr. Sebastian and the Negro Magician." Not until the very end of the book do the characters and plots snap into sharp focus. And, even then, some of the most tantalizing mysteries remain unrevealed. Wallace is the author of "Big Fish," which provided the raw material for a 2003 movie by Tim Burton, as well as "The Watermelon King" and "Ray in Reverse."

The new musical “Big Fish” has itself reeled in a big catch: the Neil Simon Theatre. Based on Daniel Wallace's 1998 novel and the 2003 film directed by Tim Burton, the in-development production has had its eye on Broadway for several years; with a theater now secured, it's set to open Oct. 6 in New York. Directed and choreographed by Susan Stroman, who has five Tony wins under her belt, “Big Fish” will star two-time Tony Award winner Norbert Leo Butz (“Catch Me If You Can,” “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels”)

Robin Abcarian's piece (on Perez Hilton, "Wired for Conflict," Aug. 9) was fantastic. It was honest and funny and enlightening. I have mailed Mr. Hilton numerous times, just to let him know he is appreciated and I occasionally throw some fun stuff his way, which sometimes, surprisingly, ends up on his site! I am a straight Mormon from Ohio, and when Prop. 8 passed, I sent him a letter of encouragement, letting him know that not all Mormons are small minded. But more importantly, I told him to have hope.
