TELLING: Confessions, Concessions, and Other Flashes of Light by Marion Winik (Vintage: $10; 213 pp.). National Public Radio commentator Marion Winik summarizes one of the central conflicts of the Baby-Boom generation when she recalls, "Yes, I wanted to be a wild teenage rebel, but I wanted to do it with my parents' blessing." She recounts her typical but stormy youth that included drugs, rock music and rebellion; yet she became a happily married suburban wife and mother. Her lively memoir disproves the dark prophecies that the entire '60s generation was headed for the graveyard or the insane asylum.
