From the best-selling 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.

For 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.

    " Even though memoir isn't really my "thing," I am enjoying this very much. I'll post more when I'm farther into it - for now, though, I can tell you that it's a really engaging read. "

    " I liked her She's Not There, so I was excited to read this one and see what has happened in the past five years. I liked this funny, sad, sweet, poignant, honest memoir which is extremely well written. I love the juxtaposition of Boylan's haunted house and her own personal identity haunting. "

    " Are people haunted by ghosts or do we haunt ourselves? Can the future, in the content of repressed feelings and instinctive knowledge, come back to haunt us in the present? Can the past haunt us still? What does this say about our psychology? "
