Ghosts of Ourselves - Beyond Black by Hilary Mantel
I've never read Hilary Mantel before and I found Beyond Black a smart, entertaining, provocative and fast moving.
A professional medium, Alison, seeks to help others via what she hears from the voices of the dead. However, she is haunted not merely by these voices but by her own private ghosts who have imprisoned her in a relationship with her life that is no longer to her liking. My complete thoughts are here, but in short, Mantel is an observant and delightfully funny writer who I look forward to reading more of!
