As its title, A Jealous Ghost, indicates, haunting is the subject of this tense, terse novel. Only a few of us are convinced that we have been haunted by ghosts of the dead. But all of us are constantly haunted by lost loves, cruelties either inflicted or endured, and resigned or still restless yearnings for what we know can never be.
