Escapes

Joy Williams, Author, Robin Desser, Editor Vintage Books USA $11 (168p) ISBN 978-0-679-73331-7
Themes of sickness, lies and death recur here: in the title story, Lizzie and her alcoholic mother entertain illusions of recovery on a trip to a magic show, while ``The Route'' maps a couple's waning love. ``Several of these tales have been included in prize collections,'' said PW ; ``all of them exhibit the qualities of a skillfully cut gem: shapely, luminous, multifaceted.''
