Today's Inquirer reviews ...

... is a kind of reunion:

... Katie has a YA roundup: Young-adult nonfiction and novels.

... Glenn Altschuler, who frequently reviewed for me, reviews Alice Munro: What comes before happiness.

... Michael Harrington, who was my first assistant, looks at Writings left behind by Vonnegut.

... also, Dan De Luca, who still works at the paper and reviewed a lot for me as well, checks out Orhan Pamuk: A life sacrificed to obsessive, hopeless love.


  1. Susan B.10:29 AM

    And, sadly (for me), I was supposed to have a review in today (of B. Kingsolver's "The Lacuna"), but it ain't here. Tant pis pour moi.

    Frank, I miss ya boy. Good to see your words and wisdom continue to grow. The latter is the one benefit of aging, methinks. For writers and judges, the discernment improves.

  2. Damn! That would have really rounded it out, Susan. Yes, after the holiday, we should have lunch.

  3. Interesting. I was just looking at "Valis" on my bookshelf last night, thinking about diving into it again. It's come a few times lately?


    Or systems at work?


  4. My God, Art. That could be out of VALIS.
