In the catchy title department, there's Dear Saint Anne, Send Me a Man: And Other Time-Honored Prayers for Love, by Alice and Clare LaPlante. The sisters, whose good humor was evident in their previous book, Heaven Help Us: The Worrier's Guide to the Patron Saints, offer amusing tips for the lovelorn. Here's the full text of the Saint Anne prayer: ""Dear St. Anne, send me a man. If he lies or if he dies, please, Mary's mother, send me another."" Sprinkled throughout such tongue-in-cheek prayers are interesting historical anecdotes about the saints. ( Jan.)
