A 13-year-old Texas boy was taken into custody Thursday for questioning about an attack in which an 8-year-old boy was badly burned over his whole body. "So far the young man has admitted to being there when the 8-year-old was set on fire," Montgomery County Sheriff Guy Williams told reporters. His name was not released because he is under 18. The victim, Robert Middleton, emerged with horrific burns from woods near his home in the small town of Splendora, north of Houston, Sunday evening.

Opportunity knocks in Rick Robinson's relationship drama "Asymmetry," but once the door has been opened, no one seems to know what to do next. That's because the hard part still remains: Determining whether the person at the threshold is someone you want to admit into your life. Lucid by Proxy presented a version of this play in a larger theater a year ago as part of EdgeFest.

Anne DeSalvo's "The Amati Girls" is a sentimental, straightforward domestic drama centering on four adult sisters in an Italian American family in Philadelphia. In her feature debut, veteran actress DeSalvo draws from her own family but doesn't give her people much individuality--she doesn't make the most of a large and substantial ensemble cast.

These stories are jazzy, clubby, folksy, small towny, populist, perky, and if you don't like them, you must be in an absolutely unshakable bad mood. Indeed, if you approach them in a bad mood to begin with, you might get a case of the cultural bends, because J. California Cooper dedicates these eight stories to 26 personages, including Patti LaBelle, Pharoah Akhnaton, 13 of her cats (Muggins, Icy, La La and so on), Dian Fossey's gorillas and all the Untouchables of India.

A Place With Promise by Edward Swift (Doubleday: $16.95; 264 pages) The "place with promise" here is East Texas, down along the banks of the Sabine River, but Edward Swift's novel "sees" his place the way J. G. Ballard's "Empire of the Sun" conjured wartime Shanghai, or Hiber Conteras (writing from his South American jail) envisioned Southern California when he created "Ten Percent of Life."

"Perhaps you're a closet Victorian," said a friend of mine dryly to one of our dinner companions, observing with relish the frilly setting at the Secret Garden. Moorpark is a farm town that would look at home in, say, Montana, and until recently the dining scene here has been limited mainly to steak joints and Mexican restaurants. The Secret Garden adds a charming new dimension.
