The Time of the Ghosts

A moving tale of loss, memory, and survival — and a great ghost story.” KJ Bishop, award-winning author of The Etched City. From the author who brought you ‘Langue [dot] doc 1305’ and ‘The Art of Effective Dreaming’, comes Gillian Polack’s newest tale, ‘The Time of the Ghosts’. Ghosts trail after us. They are our fears and the shape of our hates. We bring them into our lives and into our homes. A fairy – variety melusine – tells of her private ghosts in unreliable fairy stories. She handles her own haunting. Some years our fears and hates are so strong that we turn our ghosts tangible. Instead of trailing after us forlornly, whispering “Believe in us, or you are damned,” they fracture our landscape. Poltergeists and the spirits of drowned girls; malicious presences and portents; cat vampires and roaming bushrangers. These ghosts haunt Canberra. These ghosts can kill. It takes four women, one cup of tea at a time, to deal with Canberra’s haunting.
