Today's Inquirer reviews ...

... I anticipate Halloween with a look at Charles Williams' 1945 novel All Hallows' Eve: A haunted tale in London - with the cuteness exorcised.

... Roger Miller ponders Weimar: Doomed stab at democracy.

... Martha Woodall is much taken with Jonis Agee's The River Wife: Wife on the Mississippi, plumbing the depths of her forerunners.

... Katie Haegele finds a new source of poetry: The words go round and round and they come out here.

... Katie also likes Jutta Richter's new novel: Young Adult Reader | 8-year-old learns about the world, through a cat's words.

... David Montgomery praises Walter Mosley: A warm welcome back, Easy Rawlins.

During the past week ...

... John Rossi had praise for Michael Korda's biography of Eisenhower: Passage of time is kind to Ike.


  1. Thanks for reviewing Charles Williams' All Hallow's Eve. It's a favorite novel of mine, and I'm glad to see it back in print. All of his novels are quite unique, as was his poetry. A very interesting writer.

    Yes, thank you -- I read your review and now I want to read the book. I love quirky spooky tales like that ("Hawksmoor" by Peter Ackroyd another such).
