David KirbyIf you're going to have one character complain to another that Virginia Woolf's novels are ''all chorus and no plot,'' you'd better supply lots of plot yourself, and Schutt does. But most of the action takes place between her characters' ears -- or at least between the ears of those old enough to have some kind of inner reality. Mentally and physically, Schutt's young people lead humdrum existences, but if her slightly older characters don't have much going on in the real world, at least their thoughts sizzle and pop.
