ALAN LIGHTMAN Disposed to prove C.P. ("Two Cultures") Snow an intellectual curmudgeon, the physicist-writer took a step back from his scientific leanings in the Kafkaesque The Diagnosis. Now, he subtly revisits the time-theory musings of Einstein's Dreams with Reunion, a Sliding Doors fable in which poet turned professional appreciator Charles recalls an old love affair with increasing uncertainty, haunted by the life he might have lived: "Every possible word is said and not said, every possible thought is thought and not thought, and what is not said is still there." WEDNESDAY AT 7:30, Barnes & Noble, 2289 Broadway, 212-362-8835. (Reidy)

'PARIS REVIEW' 50TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION George Plimpton's tony journal turns half a century old this year; the title of its recently published compendium is too long to repeat here, but it includes not only God and Sex but (perhaps more importantly) Whimsy and Intoxication. The evergreen literary "It" boy is joined by novelist Paul Auster, actor Josh Hamilton, and the band One Ring Zero, and assorted surprise guests are slated to show. TUESDAY AT 7:30, Rumsey Playfield, Central Park, mid-park, at 72nd Street, 212-360-CPSS. (De Krap)
