Leaving Brooklyn

Lynne Sharon Schwartz, Author Penguin Books $10.95 (160p) ISBN 978-0-14-013197-0
``Not as complex or inventive as Disturbances in the Field ,'' judged PW , ``this slim, nostalgic novel reincarnates, from a contemporary adult narrator's perspective, post-WW II Brooklyn, where conformity, sensible relationships and coherence wage an age-old battle against passion and creativity.'' Here silver-tongued prose compensates for wobbly plot contrivances. (Aug.)
