The Moons of Jupiter

Alice Munro, Author Vintage Books USA $14 (256p) ISBN 978-0-679-73270-9
Themes of heartbreak and the sadness of women aging dominate this collection: in ``The Stone in the Field,'' maiden aunts inhabit a farmhouse, dreading human contact; in ``The Turkey Season,'' a girl paid to gut turkeys observes the sexual carryings-on of adults. According to PW , ``The writer's questioning memory gives us sharp flashes of reality that are so vividly recalled they permit us to live another life for a moment.'' (May)
