Today's Inquirer reviews ...

... include:

... Ed Pettit's look at Adam Sisman's take on Wordsworth and Coleridge: A friendship that sparked great poetry.

... and Patrick Kurp's look at Scott Donaldson's take on Edwin Arlington Robinson: A poet's life that's worth resurrecting.

... Katie Haegele is charmed and moved by Eavan Boland: An Irish poet writes of her land.

... Katie also likes Catherine Ryan Hyde's The Year of My Miraculous Reappearance: Young Adult Reader Good kid makes some bad moves, but there's hope by the end.

... and Desmond Ryan is impressed by Asa Larsson's latest: Swedish novelist spills out engrossing intrigue.

Yesterday, Michelle Reale reported on Rishi Reddi's new story collection: Book Review Surprising variation on popular South Asian themes.

And, during the week ...

... Scott Esposito took the measure of Roberto Bolaño's The Savage Detectives: Hispanic's epic tale makes its English debut.

... and John Rooney paid a visit to umpiring: Book Review An umpire's memories of the Negro Leagues.

There should be something for everybody in that mix.

    Interestingly, I read Asa Larsson's first novel, Sun Storm, over the weekend, and enjoyed it very much. Quite a talent, I think.
