A shocking, touching and humorous debut, Jonah Sees Ghosts blends magical realism with a study of the ways alcohol and abuse shapes personalities within a family. At 15, Jonah Hart is a boy with a problem he's afraid to share: Not only does he see ghosts, but when he dreams, he travels outside his body. As the ghosts become more and more aggressive, Jonah withdraws into his dream world, where he is forced to make a stand from the full depths of abandonment and isolation in a last stab at redemption. Sullivan writes with beautiful, introspective clarity.' - Henry Rollins'
