DeVries, P: The Mackerel Plaza. The Martyrdom of the Rev. 'Holy' Mackerel; THE MACKEREL PLAZA. By Peter DeVries. pp. Boston: Little, Brown & Co. $   Still wish I hadn't culled my copy of The Mackerel Plaza. I re-read this after 25 or 30 years only because I could not find his The Mackerel Plaza at the library. I'm too prudish to have enjoyed the main plot, but the book improved my English, made me laugh/squirm, and had an interesting take on the role of religion in modern society/5.
