Did she or didn't she? That's what people are asking after Los Angeles radio host and free-lance writer Susan Block announced this month that Toni Grant didn't give her credit for co-writing "Being a Woman" by putting her name only in the book's acknowledgments.

Henry Bean's "The Believer," an explosive portrait of a young Jew who becomes a neo-Nazi, is as ultimately unsatisfying as it is provocative. In the title role, Ryan Gosling is electrifying and terrifyingly convincing, but key people around him are so inadequately drawn as to be unpersuasive.

Psychologist Lonnie Barbach urges women to explore their erotic fantasies as a way of improving their love lives. The sex therapist has discussed the topic without taboos on local talk shows and has originated a group therapy program for women who have never experienced orgasm.

The American man of the 25th century has a bar code emblazoned on his arm, thinks that the polka music of his forebears is fabulous and is afraid of Chihuahuas.
