Any Human Heart, by William Boyd (Knopf, 496 pages, $26) is the sort of rare novel that redeems the essential purpose of prose fiction - rising majestic above the vast fields of books, ranging from trash to near-art, disgorged from binderies year after year. It is a book that looks with confidence and yet unflinching awe at the circumstance of a human life -- of the meaning, if it is not absurd to say there is one, of life itself. It is presented entirely as the sporadic personal journal of Logan Mountstuart, born in 1906 in Uruguay, to an Englishman in business and a Uruguayan mother.

Fascination: Stories By William Boyd. Alfred A. Knopf. 288 pages. $24. William Boyd is a British novelist (Any Human Heart, The New Confessions) who loves the short story. In fact, the worst thing you can say about Fascination, Boyd's third collection of stories, is that maybe he loves the form too much. The stories often feature a self-involved protagonist -- almost always male -- lost in that place between yearning and regret, which, in Boyd's world, is typically located very near a hotel room.
