Publisher Description

"Surreal, darkly hilarious and profound." —San Francisco Chronicle

Ghost Lights stars an IRS bureaucrat named Hal—a man baffled by his wife’s obsession with her missing employer. In a moment of drunken heroism, Hal embarks on a quest to find the man, embroiling himself in a surreal tropical adventure (and an unexpected affair with a beguiling German woman). Ghost Lights is Lydia Millet at her best—beautifully written, engaging, full of insight into the heartbreaking devotion of parenthood and the charismatic oddity of human behavior.

Fancy Nancy ! ,

ghost Lights

captured my attention until the final pages where it became so rambling-----This becomes a very dark novel. however, the initial character development is pleasing and the internal, yet not spoken perceptions of the main characters are brilliant .

the ending leaves one crestfallen.

Were is the fist book in the series?

Not much point in reading the second book in a series if you can not download the first.
