Product description

Review

'Lorna Gibb's compelling story of spiritualism and mediums is full of the most intriguing, bizarre detail as she reveals the insider secrets of séances from the uses of lengths of muslin to a dollop of phosphorescence...Gibb's novel is multi-layered...add in a supporting cast of rogues, charlatans and true believers and the theatrical trappings of séances and you are pitched in a world that is rich and strange.' --4 star review, Sunday Express

'Crossing time and continents, melding found material, real and fictitious characters and events, this is an intriguing, well-researched debut about truth and illusion, reality and the world of the spirit.'
Debut fiction review in Daily Mail, (13/11/15)

'Astonishingly adept... mysterious, wry, sophisticated but also brutally honest'
FEAR Magazine ***** (11/15)

'Genuinely moving' Financial Times (11/12/15)

'Ideal fireside reading' Lady (04/12/15)


'The author has a meticulous eye for historical detail and writes evocatively'
Irish Times (21/11/15) --Irish Times

'At turns spooky and comical, Gibb deftly weaves fact with fiction so that each page shimmers ectoplasmically with uncertainty.'
Review in the (Irish) Mail on Sunday (29/11/15)

'A fascinating story of what it might be like to be a ghost, and the longing in us that makes us want them to exist'
Books of the Year in the Herald (Glasgow) chosen by Lesley McDowell (30/11/15)

'A playful...paean to the mystery and unknowability of the creative imagination.'
Review in the Independent (03/12/15) --Independent
