November 10, 1996|CHARLES SOLOMON

SUBURBAN GUERRILLAS by Joseph Freda (Hardscrabble/University Press of New England: $9.95, 214 pp.). Monadnock Street in Hurley, N.H., seems an ideal place to live: gracious homes, immaculate lawns, friendly people. Freda's first novel depicts the discontent that flourishes beneath this peaceful facade. When a sleazy developer tears out trees to build tacky houses on an adjacent lot, the neighbors mount a campaign of semi-armed resistance that reveals fraying marriages and uncertainty about the quality of exurban life.
