The Shrapnel Academy

Fay Weldon, Author Penguin Books $8.95 (192p) ISBN 978-0-14-009746-7
Guests apostrophize epic battles, and mutiny is brewing in the servants' quarters at a party given at the Shrapnel Academy, which memorializes Henry Shrapnel, inventor of the exploding cannon ball. The ""versatile'' Weldon ``is in her element with this fiendish satire, inviting comparison with Swift's acid condemnation of Homosupposedlysapiens in Gulliver's Travels,'' PW stated. (April)
