LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

ashville's BookMan has found his BookWoman, a new addition to a used and rare book store that grew out of a flea market and has found a home in a friendly neighborhood.

Readers who approach Charles Willeford's "The Difference" as a simple Western thriller will forgive its minor implausibilities. Those who read it as something deeper won't care.

Gary Gach has created a poetry collection that offers big, pudgy handfuls of insight with enough nutritive power to propel you quite a way up the golden, treacherous path to nirvana.

Also, a biography of architect Frederick Law Olmsted, two new novels, and more.
