Barbara Kingsolver. Harper Perennial, $13.99 (272pp) ISBN 978-0-06-091701-2

``With this dazzling array of stories, demonstrating a wide range of characterizations, settings, situations and voices, Kingsolver confirms the promise of her astonishingly accomplished first novel, The Bean Trees ,'' praised PW . ``If the symbolism in a few tales is too obvious, the author handles other narrative devices with delicacy and subtle skill.''
