OUR NEIGHBORHOOD bank was robbed recently. It happens often, which is why I knew what was up when I saw a policeman in Linkwood Park. The cop was looking down at the mouth of the tunnel through which Stony Run passes beneath Overhill Road. "Been a bank robbery," I said. It wasn't even a question. He nodded, staring at the tunnel as if he expected the robber to emerge at any moment. "Good place to hide," I offered. (If you don't mind getting your feet wet, or the rats.) "Did he come this way?"

Howard Norman's second novel, "The Bird Artist," begins this way: "My name is Fabian Vas . . . I am a bird artist, and I have more or less made my living at it. Yet I murdered the lighthouse keeper, Botho August, and that is an equal part of how I think of myself."The rest of the novel describes the different ways that Fabian thinks of himself, his family, and the events occurring in Witless Bay, Newfoundland -- from 1891, the year of Fabian's birth, until 1923, 12 years after the murder of the lighthouse keeper.
