June 18, 1987 | MONA GABLE, Gable is a Los Angeles writer. and
Paul Auster seems like such a stable, engaging man, not at all the type to be afflicted by the stuff of bad dreams. The 40-year-old novelist, who teaches creative writing at Princeton University, talks of his happy marriage. He has a 9-year-old son, Daniel, whom he clearly adores. He's eagerly awaiting the birth of his second child just weeks from now. And he recently bought a small apartment for his family in Brooklyn. He is also the kind of person who practices small niceties.

March 16, 1997 | COLMAN ANDREWS, Andrews is the editor of Saveur magazine and the author of "Flavors of the Riviera: Discovering Real Mediterranean Cooking." (Bantam)
I spent much of the mid-1980s hanging around one great Mediterranean seaport and much of the mid-1990s hanging around another, and I can't help comparing the two. Both were powers of medieval Europe; both have large, often mysterious medieval quarters. Both boast impressive architecture and art collections; both have their own language, or at least dialect--part of a cultural identity setting them apart from the modern nations to which they have become attached. Those are the similarities.
