Facing the Music: Stories

Larry Brown, Author Harper Perennial $9 (167p) ISBN 978-0-06-097255-4
Brown uses vernacular speech to good effect in these 10 raw, festering tales of the Deep South. His protagonists, nearly all men, seek escape in booze, sex, TV, religion and fantasy. ``There is an unvarying sameness to many of these unfulfilled lives, but Brown pierces the macho armor to discover the hurt, love and caring,'' praised PW.
