The author of The War Between the Tates and the Pulitzer prize-winning Foreign Affairs now brings her irresistible wit to the ghost story.
In nine spooky tales, Alison Lurie writes of women haunted by ghosts both literal and metaphorical: A woman about to marry Mr. Right is visited by the spirit of his first wife; a dead fiancé haunts a foreign service officer every time she has an intimate moment with another man; the ghost of a girl in a Halloween costume disconcerts the perfect housewife. A secretary on a diet begins to see obese people everywhere she looks; a self-conscious poet is shadowed by her intrusive doppelganger; and a capricious, malevolent spirit seems to have inhabited an acquisitive matron's prized piece of furniture.
Delightfully strange and beautifully told, these nine tales show Alison Lurie at her luminous best.
From the Publisher: With tales exquisitely strange and perfectly told, the best-selling author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Foreign Affairs delights us yet again with nine tales of women and of the unexpected.
