Ordinary Love and Good Will

Jane Smiley, Author Ivy Books $5.99 (224p) ISBN 978-0-8041-0714-3
Two novellas demonstrate the price children often pay for their parents' mistakes: in Ordinary Love , a father divides his family after his wife announces her extramarital affair, while in Good Will a boy is the victim of his father's obsession to maintain an exaggeratedly simple, self-sufficient lifestyle. ``Wise, powerful and resonantly memorable, these stories are sure to be classics,'' applauded PW .
