[Haskell-cafe] Use Template Haskell recover inside the IO monad

I'm new to Template Haskell and just started playing with it.
I have Haskell platform 2011.4.0 and I get this error when I try to run this simple code.
main = do
code <- runQ $ recover (return ) th
putStrLn (pprint code)
putStrLn (show code)
th :: Q [Dec]
th = [d|
sum a b = a + b
Template Haskell error: Can't do `recover' in the IO monad
POC.hs: user error (Template Haskell failure)
How can I get declarations with the "recover" function so I can print a custom error message using "location"?
If I can't do it inside the IO monad, how can I do a program to pretty print Haskell code?
