Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
The award-winning novelist shares her insights into the life of a major American poet as she explores the relationship between James Merrill and his long-time partner, David Jackson, and its influence on Merrill's acclaimed work. Reprint.

Review:
"[This is an] evocative and gratifyingly lucid memoir."

Janet Maslin, New York Times, 02/22/2001

Review:
"In FAMILIAR SPIRITS, Alison Lurie has written a revealing, happily far from objective tribute....It conveys the bitter flavor of lives tried and failed [and] it left this reader jolted and distressed."

Peter Davison, Atlantic Monthly, March 2001

Book Description: Penguin Books, United States, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reissue. 180 x 140 mm. Brand New Book. Alison Lurie, one of America s greatest novelists, has written a loving memoir of world-famous poet James Merrill and his longtime partner David Jackson. Drawing on her forty-year friendship with Merrill and Jackson, Lurie reveals the couple s deep involvement with ghosts, gods, and spirits, with whom they communicated through a Ouija board. Among the results of their intense twenty-year preoccupation with the occult is the brilliant book-length poem The Changing Light at Sandover, which Merrill called his chronicles of love and loss. Recalling Merrill and Jackson s life together in New York, Athens, and Key West, Familiar Spirits is a poignant memoir infused with great affection and generous amounts of Lurie s signature wit.
