Health and Happiness

Diane Johnson, Author Fawcett Books $5.99 (0p) ISBN 978-0-449-21841-9
The hospital milieu is accurately rendered but the characterization unsatisfying in this novel about a single mother who hovers near death after being treated incorrectly for a minor problem. ``The timeliness of her theme and her adroit plotting should make this Johnson's most commercial novel; one cannot but wish, however, that the narrative were less facile and more deeply felt, '' said PW.
