Disappearing Acts

Terry McMillan. Washington Square Press, $14 (384pp) ISBN 978-0-671-70843-6

This is a story of love between Zora, an independent, aspiring singer, and Franklin, a sometimes-employed carpenter. Life has been unkind to these star-crossed lovers, but they're both survivors. ``Despite an abundance of flash and energy, this book lacks the depth and breadth to which McMillan aspires,'' commented PW .
