Description:

In this tantalizing tale of Victorian ghost stories and family secrets, timid, solitary librarian Gerard Freeman lives for just two things: his elusive pen pal Alice and a story he found hidden in his mother's drawer years ago. Written by his great-grandmother Viola, it hints at his mother's role in a sinister crime. As he discovers more of Viola's chilling tales, he realizes that they might hold the key to finding Alice and unveiling his family's mystery-or will they bring him the untimely death they seem to foretell? Harwood's astonishing, assured debut shows us just how dangerous family skeletons-and stories-can be.

“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
