Ghosting

by Jonathan Kemp - £8.99  Myriad Editions (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780956251565 | ISBN 10: 0956251560

Drawing on a brilliant literary tradition of madness, incarceration and escape, Jonathan Kemp delivers a Mrs Dalloway for the modern age – and the triumphant coming-of-age of a woman in her sixties.
 
When Grace Wellbeck thinks she sees the ghost of her first husband, she fears for her sanity and worries that she’s having another breakdown. Long-buried memories come back thick and fast: from the fairground thrills of 1950s Blackpool to the dark reality of a violent marriage.
 
But the ghost turns out to be very real: a charismatic young man named Luke. And as Grace gets to know him she is jolted into an emotional awakening that brings her to a momentous decision.
