Four generations of American Jewish women writers are represented in these 23 tales; Mary Antin and Edith Konecky explore the secondary role of women in Judaism, Hortense Calisher deals with generational conflict, a 1932 story by Tess Slesinger concerns abortion and Cynthia Ozick confronts the Holocaust. PW called this an ``absorbing collection . . . powerful and deeply moving.'' (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
