Widows

Ariel Dorfman, Author, Stephen Kessler, Translator Penguin Books $9 (160p) ISBN 978-0-14-011659-5
Set in occupied Greece during WW II, Dorfman's first novel to be translated into English limns the women of a village whose men have been imprisoned and killed as conspirators. Confronting their oppressors, the widows stubbornly resist their power and what it represents. ``His beautifully understated tale is as powerful as it is moving,'' PW remarked. (Feb.)
