Elizabeth Ames in her essay "One Reader's Trash Is Another's Treasure" (First Person, Feb. 12) expresses so well what many of us feel. I, too, love trash. I'm a college graduate and active in cultural organizations, but the 30 minutes weekly under the dryer in a beauty parlor are scarcely long enough for me to get through the National Enquirer.

We all have an if only side of ourselves. The person we would be if things had been different. If only I had been bolder, if only I'd started earlier. If only I had practiced. I might have become the artist, performer, lawyer I'm not today. I might have become a stand-up comic. The ingredients were there. I had Angst worthy of Woody Allen, an offbeat sense of humor, a misfit history of never quite fitting in and quirks too numerous to mention.

The wait for a new novel from Tom Wolfe will have been 10 years by next November, when Farrar, Straus & Giroux brings out the writer's first hardcover fiction since the popular "Bonfire of the Vanities." Meanwhile, Wolfe is offering an appetizer in the pages of Rolling Stone, where "Bonfire" first appeared as a 27-part "serial novel," and his book publisher has offered a few other details of the much-anticipated work.

It begins innocently enough, or so you think. One day those fine lines around your eyes turn to wrinkles. Or that impossibly young salesgirl starts addressing you as "Sir" or "Ma'am." Or that new boss calls you into his office and casually asks when you plan to retire. For Paul Mones, a 37-year-old Santa Monica lawyer, it was something as innocuous as a photograph. "Someone took a picture of me from high above. And, for the first time, I really got a good look at my bald spot."
