Description Women and Ghosts de Frederic J Whiton Professor of American Literature Alison Lurie:
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 fiancE 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.
