Today's Inquirer reviews ...

... but first, Mike Schaffer's obituary for Norman Mailer: An American literary giant. I think Mike did a great job under very difficult circumstances - ever try to reach people for comment on a Saturday night?

... now to the reviews:

... John Timpane falls in love with The epic, and relevant, story of the Latin language.

... I have a good time with Harry Mount's Carpe Diem: Seize the Latin, or fun with a dead language.

... David Walton travels with Marco: Modern retelling of the adventures of Marco Polo Laurence Bergreen has explored such disparate personalities as Louis Armstrong and Magellan.

... Katherine Bailey loves Stewart O'Nan's Last Night at the Lobster: Last shifts at a doomed Red Lobster.

... Katie Haegele finds Margo Lanagan's latest downright uncanny: Young Adult Reader | Stories' chills come from who-knows-where or -when.

... and during the past week, Steve Weinberg took a Historical look at role of ships in slave trade.

  1. Good to see that Schaffer got in touch with Vollmann on this piece. Nice job under pressure.

  2. I remember a very hot Christmas book called Latin for Every Occasion by Henry Beard. I think it was published in 1990. It was hilarious to see the reaction people had when someone casually dropped a comment in Latin into the conversation. (Say what?)
