Gary Vitti eased his way into a hat store in Cleveland on a recent Lakers trip in search of a lid for his bald head, when the door quickly opened and a man burst in. "Hey, you're Gary Vitti, the Lakers' trainer," the man blurted out. "You're the man! You're more important than the coach." Vitti rubbed his head and laughed at what he had just heard. "No, man," Vitti said, smiling, "no way." When this story was shared with Lakers Coach Phil Jackson, he cracked a smile and laughed.

Gary's agent, however, said the new offer will probably not be enough. "It wasn't much of a bump," said Jordan Woy, Gary's agent. "It's nowhere near the neighborhood of where we anticipate being."

Caribou Island A Novel David Vann Harper: 296 pp., $25.99 "Caribou Island" is disturbing, as dark as it is moving, powerful far beyond the dimensions of many debut novels. The book focuses tightly on a small group of characters. If you've read the stories in David Vann's "Legend of a Suicide" or his "A Mile Down: The True Story of a Disastrous Career at Sea," you may recognize some of them. And as in his previous books, Vann ranges over the landscape of his childhood: the cold rain forest of Alaska's Kenai Peninsula, the ocean, fishing vessels, storms, narcissism, suicide.
