>PICTURING WILL Ann Beattie's vivid novel about a 5-year-old and his divorced photographer mother develops an image of parenting that is both contemporary and wise. (Vintage)

THE BROKEN CORD Personal, moving and tragic is Michael Dorris's award-winning non-fiction book about his adopted son, Adam, a victim of fetal alcohol syndrome. (Harper Perennial)

THE QUINCUNX Take all things Dickensian, both wonderful and wretched, wrap them around a plot about a young man's efforts to recover an inheritance, obsess about the number 5, as in the title, and you have Charles Palliser's sprawling, modern Victorian novel. (Ballantine)
