Floating in My Mother's Palm

Ursula Hegi, Author Vintage Books USA $11 (187p) ISBN 978-0-679-73115-3
Hanna Malter, a young girl in a post-WW II German town, obliquely exposes the secret lives of her family and acquaintances. According to PW , ``Some of the parables are a little too neat, but in general these finely tuned, interlocked vignettes convey both the essence of childhood and the spiritual emptiness of a community unwilling to confront the implications of the recent war.''
