Jack

A. M. Homes, Author Vintage Books USA $13.95 (220p) ISBN 978-0-679-73221-1
Jack is almost 16 as the story opens, struggling to keep life normal in the wake of his parents' divorce some years earlier. During a weekend outing, Jack's father admits to being a homosexual, throwing Jack's psyche and social life for a loop. Homes `` perfectly captures the feelings, actions and even the speech cadences of a typical adolescent American male,'' commended PW. Author tour. (Sept.)
