Summary

SHORTLISTED FOR THE PORTICO PRIZE 2022

'Unnerving, absorbing . . . Laurie is a miraculous creation . . . Piercingly human and darkly funny, Ghosted is a tender, beautifully controlled account of expectations knocked off course.' Sunday Times


One ordinary morning, Laurie's husband disappears, leaving behind his phone and wallet. For weeks she tells no one, carrying on her cleaning job at the university, visiting her tricky, dementia-suffering father and holing up in her high-rise flat with a bottle to hand. When she finally reports him as missing, the police are suspicious. What took her so long?

Laurie can't fully explain her behaviour even to herself, or the strange presence she senses in the flat. Only when she looks back on the ensuing wreckage does she begin to understand, and see how she might repair the damage.
