In the 11 stories of ``Five Acre Virgin,'' the narrator describes growing up with her mother and older brother, a petty thief. The 10 entries in ``The Travelling Entertainer'' illuminate the plight of loners in big cities. ``The author trusts readers to look beneath the surface for profound meanings in stories whose ambiguities and implications stir the imagination,'' wrote PW.
