From the bestselling author of She’s Not There comes another buoyant, unforgettable memoir—I’m Looking Through You is about growing up in a haunted house… and making peace with the ghosts that dwell in our hearts.
Jennifer Boylan, creaking stairs, fleeting images in the mirror, and
the remote whisper of human voices were everyday events in the
Pennsylvania house in which she grew up in the 1970s. But these weren’t
the only specters beneath the roof of the mansion known as the “Coffin
House.” Jenny herself—born James—lived in a haunted body, and both her
mysterious, diffident father and her wild, unpredictable sister would
soon become ghosts to Jenny as well.
I’m Looking Through You
is an engagingly candid investigation of what it means to be “haunted.”
Looking back on the spirits who invaded her family home, Boylan
launches a full investigation with the help of a group of earnest, if
questionable, ghostbusters. Boylan also examines the ways we find
connections between the people we once were and the people we become.
With wit and eloquence, Boylan shows us how love, forgiveness, and humor
help us find peace—with our ghosts, with our loved ones, and with the
uncanny boundaries, real and imagined, between men and women. Download and start listening now!
