become known as the "Hammer-

his publisher, "it is hard to com-
pose almost entirely for the sake
of earning one's daily bread, and
that is all I have been able to
achieve"), the "Hammerklavier" is
a work of great vitality and power.
Divided into four movements
(Allegro, Scherzo, Adagio and
Fugu e), it contains some of
Beethoven's most sublime and pro-
found music, along with many
passages illustrative of his late
style — extensive use of con-
trapuntal textures, unusual, almost
modern sonorities, and so on. The
fugue, in particular, makes no
concessions to the pianist. Rather,
it requires the artist's hands to
make rapid, daring leaps all over
the keyboard.

Harry Golden's 'So What Else Is New?'
and 'Love, Knishes' Out in Paperbacks

Fawcett World Library has is-
sued Harry Golden's "So What
Else Is New?", first published by
Putnam in 1964, as a paperback.
It contains tidbits, brief anec-
dotes, commentaries on scores of
subjects, the author's unique way
of facing issues.
It is, as the publishers say about
the book, "a grab bag of wit" and
it again echoes the boming voice of
the author whose stories of this
sort made him famous.
Edited by Harry Golden Jr., this
new paperback contains nostalgic
Goldenesque references to his
early years on the East Side and
the schools he attended there, to
his experiences in the South, to
Jewish and other incidents. It
tackles the UN, the DAR, histori-
cal incidents and comments on
leading Americans and other noted
personalities.
Fawcett World Library also has
issued as part of Fawcett Crest
Books Sara Kasdan's "Love and
Knishes" as a paperback.
Featuring traditional recipes, the
book links the kitchen with the
human element—with love, with
a variety of entertaining stories
that have delighted the reader
when the book first appeared in
hard covers.
Mrs. Kasdan resides with her
husband in Louisville, Ky., where
