From the Publisher"Ghost is subtly and delicately narrated, a prolonged and unwavering look at a serious, controversial subject."
—Joyce Carol Oates, author of The Gravedigger's Daughter
"A fascinating novel, splendidly framed and elegantly told. I'm moved by the characters and by the narrator's insights into the nature of reality. I read Ghost with relish."
—Ha Jin, author of War Trash
"Both characterization and narrative are compelling, and I loved all the background of the funeral parlor. I particularly appreciated the sympathetic picture of the kind of people who are often mocked or patronized in novels—I thought there was a certain kinship with the work of Richard Ford."
—Michael Frayn, author of Copenhagen
"This is an important novel, and it deserves a lot of attention. I absorbed it as an allegory of the birth of superstition and a trip into the scary zone between the palpable and supernatural taken even by the educated twenty-first-century mind."
—Edward O. Wilson, author of Consilience
