Sunday's Inquirer reviews ...

... include my first Editor's Choice column in a while: Two more spawn of the 'Code': Middling and less

Here are the rest:

My Last Grievance, by Elinor Lipman, reviewed by Paula Marantz Cohen: P.C. parents, restless child, eccentric new friend in academe

John Freeman chats with Doris Lessing: The author on 'Gen. Dann' (There's also a review of Gen. Dann, but it doesn't seem to have been picked up online. Guess iwe will have to get that tomorrow, since, thanks to Knight Ridder's pathetic cost-cutting, the online desk isn't staffed on Sundays anymore. Hope whoever buys the paper has enough elementary business sense to know that a product must be invested in if you want people to keep buying it - and more people to want it.)

Carlin Romano looks at Museum, Inc., by Paul Werner: In 'Museum, Inc.,' an insider's look at business of art

And, in Audio Books, The baffling and lovely novel with the intriguing cover

I should also bring to your attention Karen Heller's review earlier this week of The Lightning Keeper by Starling Lawrence: Powerhouse novel about love and electricity .

Also, this week, John Freeman reviewed Geraldine Brooks's March, which won the Pultizer for fiction this week: A Pulitzer-winning novel about the 'little women's' father


  1. The last sentence in your review cracked me up Frank. Great reading!

  2. Thank you, Laurie. Always look on the bright side.
