Barking Man and Other Stories

Madison Smartt Bell, Author Penguin Books $8.95 (240p) ISBN 978-0-14-014903-6
Various and unusual characters, including a monk-like caged mouse, the urban homeless and a vengeful sculptor, appear in this collection. ``The people in these stories exert an irresistible pull,'' said PW. ``Save for an occasional unconvincing coincidence, Bell takes us to Manhattan, to his native South, to the French Riviera with its whisper of music, to London--altogether a memorable tour.''
