    Dabrowski's 101 monologs sound, to the mind's ear, like one side of an overheard cell-phone conversation. Reading through them all in about 101 minutes is like being consigned to a particular circle of hell, one where you're the next person in line for a cup of coffee, but the barista is far too involved in a personal call to help. The monologs are classified as dramatic, comic, or seriocomic, but the most successful ones (in terms of tone and possibilities for interpretation) are the comic. Of those, Babs's tale of ripped jeans and Candy's sad story of running and vomiting while pursuing the elusive male are highly recommended. Either Dabrowski, an actor and author of numerous theater books for teens, is really tuned into young adult, female lingo, or she's been hiding behind the ficus with a recording accessory. Capecci and Aston's latest addition to their "60 Seconds" entries ranges far and wide for its contents. Classified as comic, dramatic, seriocomic, and classical, they run the gamut from Benjamin Franklin and Mary Shelley through Edgar Allan Poe and Herman Melville to Bret Easton Ellis and a helping of previously unpublished writers. An equal number of monologs is provided for men and women, and helpful indexes guide the reader to appropriate ages and voices of the speaker. Barbara Casey's "The Coach's Wife" is good, but the best in the collection is Brian Graham's "David Caruso Scolds His Cat About Its Lackadaisical Litter-Box Use." Both volumes are recommended to the monolog hunter and for public and college libraries, especially if other volumes in the series are present.
