Thomas MallonIn ''Cross Channel,'' Barnes began warming up to this geriatric material with stories like ''Experiment'' and ''Tunnel.'' Now 58, he may be ideally positioned for the subject matter, just close enough to be agitated by its looming personal relevance and still far enough away for it to require the imaginative feats he performs in this compact book. The Lemon Table, in ways both modest and grand, helps sustain a reader's faith in literature as the truest form of assisted living.
