[Haskell-cafe] handling read exceptions

I want to read strings that look like "2"  or
"hello" into values of type Integer or String.
The problem is that read requires that strings be
read as "\"hello\"".  Is there a way either to
convince read to not require wrapping quotation
marks or, alternetively, to catch a read
exception, and do something sane?
