Arabesques

Anton Shammas, Author, Vivian Eden, Translator HarperCollins Publishers $11 (0p) ISBN 978-0-06-091583-4
Employing two narrators, this semi-autobiographical ``elaborate tapestry'' by an Israeli Arab interweaves the 150-year history of the Shammas clan in Fassuta, a village in northern Israel, with contemporary scenes in Paris and at the University of Iowa. PW said, ``The multilayered pyrotechnics are dazzling and sophisticated but may render this work impenetrable for many American readers.'' (May)
