NAMES IN THE NEWS
In Detroit, Jo-Ann Barnas writes that "Edge of Glory,"
a new book by CHRISTINE BRENNAN that takes a behind-the-
scenes look at figure skaters in the year leading up to the
'98 Winter Games, "reveals some unflattering moments" of
TARA LIPINSKI's Olympic quest "and portrays her camp in
constant disarray." Lipinski's agent MIKE BURG: "I have no
comment on the book. I wouldn't justify a gossip book on
skating, which is what it is." In other news, the Lipinskis
have hired PAT KINGSLEY to be Tara's press agent. L.A.-
based Kingsley handles publicity for SHARON STONE, MERYL
