A Ghost's Story : A Novel, Hardback Book

A Ghost's Story : A Novel Hardback

Hardback

Description

Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries seances and spiritualist meetings grew in popularity.

One 'ghost' appeared more than any other: the Katie King spirit.

A Ghost's Story presents the mysterious spirit writings and biographical outpourings of Katie King, this famous and enigmatic spirit celebrity.

Is she a profound and curious consciousness guided into this realm by the faith of true believers, or the cheap trickery of parlour cheats and exploitative swindlers?

Katie King is both, and more. This is the tale of a ghost's quest to understand human faith, loss and passion.

It is also the tale of a contemporary scholar desperate to understand the allure of the spirit world, journeying with Katie from the candle-lit drawing rooms of Victorian London to the Imperial Palaces of Tsars; from the shadiest of gimmicks and tricks, to the most poignant sincerity of the death-bed wish.

A Ghost's Story announces a narrator like no other, moving in and out of time and space, obstreperous, witty and profoundly honest.

Above all, it is an examination of belief and a spectacular insight into what lies on the other side.
