Picks and Pans Review: New in Paperback
>EAST IS EAST
EAST AND WEST DO MEET IN THIS ACIDIC, FUNNY T. CORAGHESSAN BOYLE NOVEL, but the twain ends up offtrack. The protagonist, a Japanese sailor, jumps ship and ends up in a Georgia landscape Boyle slathers with pretension and bigotry—acknowledging the vices' strength as he skewers them. (Penguin, $8.95)
A MORNING FOR FLAMINGOS
JAMES LEE BURKE BRINGS BACK HIS NEW ORLEANS DETECTIVE, DAVE ROBICHEAUX, whose mean mood—incited by a partner's murder—is (1) ominous for the escaped-con bad guys, (2) a source of gutsy pleasure for readers. (Avon, $4.95)
