Critic Reviews

Anyone's Ghost is about so very many things: the pains of growing up, friendship and pining, drugs, sex, the frustrations of masculinity and the thrill of testing death itself. But more than any of that, it is an overwhelmingly beautiful love story. This book will make you cry -- Jonathan Safran Foer, author of Everything Is Illuminated
This book is a monster: the magnificent writing, the gallery of characters, the fascinating glimpse into the right now make it stand about twenty feet tall among new books I've read -- Darin Strauss, author of Half a Life
