Heart Mountain: 3

Gretel Ehrlich, Author Penguin Books $20 (432p) ISBN 978-0-14-010906-1
This first novel builds itself around the WW II internment of some 100,000 Japanese-Americans. Ehrlich's assiduous research is evident, but, worthy as her intentions may be, her characters often are only wafer-thin. ``The novel succeeds less as a full-blooded work of fiction than as a compassionate documentary,'' noted PW .
