I Am Having an Adventure

Perri Klass, Author Putnam Publishing Group $17.95 (253p) ISBN 978-0-399-13146-2
Klass undoubtedly deserves credit for the range of her accomplishments: at age 27 she is a student at Harvard Medical School, has a young child, writes for national magazines, and has a novel, Recombinations, under her belt. But this collection of 20 stories does little to demonstrate any special worldliness or insights into human behavior. Telling of young women abroad searching for romance and of 1980s relationships set in San Francisco and Cambridge, the tales do not appear to move much beyond the author's personal experiences. In the stronger narratives, however, like ""Gingerbread Men,'' about the bonds women have with other women, she approachs her material with humor and perception. Still, her characters dissect their own and their lovers' lives as though they were in a biology lab, and none of them are particularly interesting specimens. (June 12)
