“Despite the heavy subject matter, the book is never maudlin. In fact, true to paradoxical form, it manages to be light and heavy at the same time. The characters, whether deceased or not, seem truly alive. The sadness comes, perhaps, from the living seeming most alive in their past, the dead seeming most alive in their present... So many novels are described as ‘haunting,’ but Ghost Town actually creates that contradictory eeriness within the reader. I’m left feeling full and empty, dissatisfied and fulfilled, as if I’m touching something which is just out of reach.”
