Description

With its openly bleeding heart and philosopher's spirit, the odd and undeniably affecting Ghostlove explores ways in which we haunt ourselves."--Paul Tremblay, New York Times Book Review



"...a grave yet hilarious meditation on insanity, depression, companionship, and leaving everything behind."--Publishers Weekly



"This is a ghost story of the highest order. A spellbinding work that isn't afraid to examine the wonderful, terrifying, and beautiful vulnerability of the human experience. "--Seth Fried, author of The Municipalists and The Great Frustration

William Rook is an occultist living in a haunted brownstone in upstate New York. There he has encountered many marvelous and confusing occurrences: an ever-shifting bloodstain on his study floor; his own cynical doppelgänger; a three-winged pigeon; and, most importantly, June, the ghost living in his bedroom. June is everything William has hoped to find--by turns playful and serious, petulant and flirtatious. But she is also secretive and sad, trapped in a hopeless limbo, her past a mystery she won't reveal. William becomes determined to help her, engaging daily in a series of experiments, rituals, and spells. But success means letting June move on, and the more William learns of her past and present, the less sure he is that he's ready to let her go.

Review quote

Previous Praise for Dennis Mahoney



"Fellow Mortals, while full of vivid interactions, is perhaps most moving in its subtle depiction of people alone, trying to find ordinary meaning amid disarray."--The New York Times



"Quietly powerful . . . With the barest glimmer of hope to buoy the calamities of his deeply earnest, lyrical story, Mahoney can share shelf space with Dave Eggers and Stewart O'Nan."--Booklist, starred review
