The High Road

Edna O'Brien, Author Plume Books $8.95 (22p) ISBN 978-0-452-26306-2
Anna has fled to a verdant island to forget a painful love affair. Contemplating suicide, she is drawn to a peasant chambermaid. After an idyllic night on the mountainside, tragedy strikes. ``Though there are some fine scenes here in which O'Brien skewers pretension with an acid pen, the novel is fatally mired in symbolism and improbable events,'' said PW.
