Sleeping in Flame

Jonathan Carroll. Vintage Books USA, $14 (288pp) ISBN 978-0-679-72777-4

In this ``farfetched'' story of reincarnation among the beautiful people, an actor stumbles upon traces of his previous lives. ``In what begins as a highly literate parapsychological puzzler, Carroll shifts gears into fantasy and fairy tale, with results that may not be wholly satisfactory to fans of any one genre,'' commented PW.
