Comment Comment, Pt. II by Harold Brodkey. We received this letter from a local man enraptured with the seasons: This time of year I think of as marking the return of buttonholes.

The Talk of the Town Budapest by Andrea Lee. Talk story about a trip to Budapest for the first postwar Grand Prix race in an Eastern European country...

The Art World Gods and Heroes by Calvin Tomkins. At the Queens Museum there is a permanent exhibition, which went on view last April, called "The Heroic Spirit: Classical Sculpture from Ancient Greece to Michelangelo". The works are plaster casts, on loan from the Metropolitan Museum - plaster casts of exceptionally good quality, taken directly from the originals more than...

Comment Comment, Pt. I by Lawrence Weschler. One of the main justifications for the huge budget allotments granted Reagan's Strategic Defense Initiative (known as Star Wars) was that there was a good chance that the Soviets would go bankrupt in attempting to match us, contraption for contraption. Over the last 3 years Star Wars has diverted some...

Fiction The Afterlife by John Updike. Carter and Jane Billings, so settled in their ways, found in their fifties that their friends were doing sudden, suprising things.

Our Far-Flung Correspondents THE LAST BABYFOOT by Calvin Trillin. OUR FAR-FLUNG CORRESPONDENTS about "babyfoot" or "foosball" or "table soccer," a game played on a table, which is actually an open rectangular box, set like the horizonal part of a pinball machine...
