Ghost Writing: Haunted Tales by Contemporary Writers

Ghost Writing: Haunted Tales by Contemporary Writers Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Ghost stories are irresistible, so much so that many of today's greatest writers have turned their hands to the genre with tremendous — and unforgettable — results. Ghost Writing collects these tales in a volume ideal for those who like their chills served up with the intelligence and emotional resonance that comes with great writing. Whether it's John Updike writing about a shadowy Indian in a coastal New England town or T. Coraghessan Boyle's tale of a vengeful three-foot statue of the Virgin Mary, this collection shows how delicious it can be to curl up with master storytellers and the things that go bump in the night.
