Linden Hills

Gloria Naylor, Author Penguin Books $15 (320p) ISBN 978-0-14-008829-8
Cynically and bitterly, Naylor (The Women of Brewster Place writes of a group of middle- and upper-middle-class blacks who have assimilated the values of the white world. She shows her contempt for them by using two young men as counterpointsthe two visit Linden Hills at Christmas and show the hypocrisy of the town's citizens. PW found that the ""narrative seems constructed and contrived rather than animated by the inner energy that distinguished Naylor's previous work. The novel as a whole is cold and preachy.'' (March)
