The Girl Who Fished With a Worm
By Harry Groome, (Connelly Press, 87 pages)
Fans of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo might want to invest a little time in this fast-paced spoof of that hugely popular literary masterpiece. Coming in at less than 100 pages, it can easily be read in one sitting. Its author lived in Villanova through most of his career at SmithKline Beecham Clinical Laboratories. Now retired, Groome is putting his MFA from Vermont College to good use by writing fiction. Better late than never. —Tara Behan
