The ghost writer
John Harwood
Adult Fiction HARWOOD

Comments  Summary  Contents  Excerpt  Reviews

ContentsPage
"For those of us who love the tradition of literary high
Victorian Gothic -
The Ghost Writer is a feast, but you don't need any prior knowledge of these other writers to savor the pure pleasure of reading this book.
The fissures in the text that let in a gust of modernity - computers, emails - just lift it into real, pure horror.
It is also mordantly funny!
That is sheer genius - to make me terrified and laughing all at once.
A tour de force." -
Author of Seven Tales of Sex and Death "
Harwood has an extraordinary knack of feeling
His way into the style, vocabulary and characteristic
Preoccupations of the great ghost story writers of the 19th and early 20th centuries
He never puts a foot wrong
The skill and verve of these stories are undeniable and irresistible
Harwood is an expert at pacing his narrative, generating
suspense and conjuring up things that go bump in the night."
- Sydney Morning Herald
