Books: What Makes Justo Fall?

SANCTUARY V by Budd Schulberg. 415 pages. World. $6.95.

In his first full-length novel since 1955, Budd Schulberg makes a bold attempt to invade the thoughts of an aging revolutionary. Justo Moreno Suaárez is the provisional President of a nation's revolutionary government. A former professor of political science, Moreno was a helpful hand in toppling the corrupt regime of President Zamora and aided the rise to power of Angel Bello, the people's hero. Bello rewards Moreno by making him a puppet president, whose essential task is to lend the revolution a respectable imprimatur.
