The April 30 closing of Dutton's bookstore, long a haven for L.A.'s literati, left readers in Brentwood and environs bereft. Now it appears that another independent book merchant is stepping in to try to fill that void. Diesel, a Bookstore -- which has stores in Oakland and Malibu -- plans to open in early September in a 1,500-square-foot space at the Brentwood Country Mart, at San Vicente Boulevard and 26th Street on the border of Santa Monica.

FOR MANY PEOPLE in publishing, the firing of Judith Regan this month represented a bit of instant karma, cosmic comeuppance at its most profound. Regan, most recently in the news for her part in the aborted O.J. Simpson book fiasco over "If I Did It," is the kind of publisher book people love to hate. Over the years, she's brought out work by Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh, Jenna Jameson and Jose Canseco.

Barack Obama had his Greek columns. Mitt Romney is turning to Frank Lloyd Wright. When the Republican National Convention begins Monday inside the Tampa Bay Times Forum, a 19,500-seat arena in Tampa, Fla., that's home during hockey season to the NHL's Lightning, the stage will be crowded with large video screens framed in wood. Actually the "wood" will be made of vinyl and various laminates, but it'll read on television as cherry, mahogany and walnut. The inspiration for the set, said Jim Fenhagen, lead production designer for the convention, is Wright's residential architecture, which often featured long horizontal bands of wood-framed windows.

Robert Lipsett, a master teacher at the Colburn School of Performing Arts, gave 15 to 20 of his violin students a one-day crash course in Jascha Heifetz earlier this month. He played a rare 33-rpm record on which the legendary violinist talked about being an artist. He invited colleagues of the musician to reminisce about the man. And he showed a video of Heifetz practicing in his Lloyd Wright-designed studio--the very room in which the group was sitting.

I have a dream in which my extremely good-natured husband suggests that, since our house came out so well, we should have a dinner party for the people who made it happen. I agree, thinking fondly of "Hans," the contractor, and "Frank," the architect. But on the night of the party we open the door and in walk the Evil Subcontractors. The framer who put the windows in the wrong places.

IT won't take long for readers of "The Fellowship," an ambitious new study of Frank Lloyd Wright by Roger Friedland and Harold Zellman, to realize that the book is no ordinary exercise in architectural history. Maybe it will happen on Page 8, when the authors describe the teenage Wright daydreaming about sex, drifting into his "moist dream space."
