Sarah Phillips should be on top of the world. When Hillary Rodham Clinton tapped the virtually unknown, 37-year-old designer to whip up her inaugural gown, she was christened "7th Avenue's Cinderella" and was overwhelmed by an avalanche of publicity.

It doesn't read like a novel. It reads more like a series of vignettes, making Andrea Lee's "Sarah Phillips" a book to be read one chapter at a sitting, one before watering the lawn, and another after putting the hose away. The book is written like that, an elusive interchange between the minute details of daily life and the hidden world of mind and heart.

During a recent visit with my sister and her family, we were invited to share Shabbat dinner with our cousins. My sister volunteered to bring dessert.

Normally in this circumstance I would bake a nondairy classic like mandelbrot. But my sister flipped through cookbooks and stumbled on a recipe for something called Crazy Chocolate Cake.

They called the Los Angeles Police Department, which dispatched detectives from the Robbery-Homicide Division. The sources said it was not immediately clear if the death was a suicide or a homicide, but Los Angeles police said a preliminary investigation indicates the man possibly killed himself.
