Jesse Kornbluth has fashioned a role as cultural concierge, offering visitors to the Web site advice on books, films and music. Kornbluth gives Debbie Elliott a sampling of cultural picks: watch the 1936 William Wyler film Dodsworth, read the intelligent thriller Identity Theory, by Peter Temple, and listen to the music of Lafayette, La.'s C.C. Adcock (Lafayette Marquis).
