LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

ow could a poorly educated, anti-intellectual and transparently deranged Austrian bastard become Germany's undisputed dictator? Ron Hansen's novel, "Hitler's Niece," provides some factual clues amongst its speculations.

In elaborate, detailed, and witty photo collages accompanied by satirical sound bites of text, "20th-Century Dreams" offers a millennial party at which you will recognize half the famous people of the century -- none of them doing what you would expect.

A number of major American poets published new collections last year, and for anyone who follows contemporary poetry, their books will be welcome gifts.

Also, a new collection of Audubon writing and illustration, an account of past-lives investigation, and more.
