The beauty of motion The Cranes Dance'

Novel offers behind-the-scenes look at ballet

As a reader, picking up the second offering from an author whose debut I enjoyed is a mixed bag. Sometimes, the writer picks up right where he or she left off, continuing onward and upward in their literary journey. Other times more times, frankly the descent begins as the author grapples with the law of diminishing returns.

Take Meg Howrey, for instance. Her debut was a novel called 'Blind Sight.' It was excellent; well-written, thoughtful, literate fiction. So I had high hopes for her sophomore effort 'The Cranes Dance' (Vintage; $17.95).

I would not be disappointed.
