CRITICS' CHOICE

June 19, 1988

THE SPY WHO GOT AWAY by David Wise (Random House: $18.95; 288 pp.) Wise's chronicling of former CIA agent Edward Lee Howard reveals a spying organization so caught up in bureaucratic self-protection that it ignored repeated signals that Howard had gone bad.--Ronald J. Ostrow

NORA

The Real Life of Molly Bloom by Brenda Maddox

(Houghton Mifflin: $19.95; 476 pp.) What Maddox has given with great success is a love story--not happy at either the public or familial level, but laying to rest the notion that Nora Barnacle and James Joyce were poorly matched.--Jackson I. Cope
