Just after a man falls in the snow and hits his head on a stone curb, a ghost arrives to take his soul to the afterlife. But something strange occurs: the man doesn’t die. Flabbergasted, the ghost appeals to his boss for further direction and is instructed to stay with the man until the strange “problem” is worked out. But things get complicated when the ghost falls madly, deeply in love with the man’s girlfriend. Soon afterward, the man discovers he did not die when he was supposed to because, for the first time, human beings have decided to take back their fates from the gods. This truly magical book is about love, talking dogs, ghosts who happen to be gourmet cooks, picnicking in the rain with yourself at twenty different ages, and what happens to us when we become the masters of our own fate.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Jonathan Carroll is as scary as Hitchcock, when he isn’t being as funny as Jim Carrey.” Stephen King
“In The Ghost In Love Jonathan Carroll deepens his art, diving into his own obsessions with love and fate, without letting go of an ounce of the uncanny effervescent quality that has always caused readers to crave his narratives like an illegal substance. He’s created a version of the world that shines like a beacon into our own.” Jonathan Lethem
“I envy anyone who has yet to enjoy the sexy, eerie, and addictive novels of Jonathan Carroll. They are delicious treats—with devilish tricks inside them.” Washington Post
“Love, memory, and balancing the needs of our many selves are themes in this occasionally scary, often luminous work of unconventional fantasy. Strongly recommended for all fiction collections.” Library Journal
“Porter is exceptionally good here, nimbly shifting vocal gears just as the author shifts literary gears…He solidly plunks us into Carroll’s utterly unique world, and that is no easy task.” Booklist
“Actor/two-time Audie Award nominee Ray Porter does a good job of drawing in listeners. Recommended for most public libraries.” School Library Journal
