Fiction. African & African American Studies. Troubled souls haunt these thirteen interrelated stories of loss and rebirth. From a cramped passenger van in Ghana to a cash-only roadside motel in Utah to a cursed forest in Japan, Donald Quist's narratives draw connections between the common and inexplicable. The diverse characters that people these stories are foreign and flawed but intimately familiar. At once scrutinizing and tender, FOR OTHER GHOSTS is an ambitious collection of short fiction.
