An Apocalyptic Fantasy is right: the hero of Jeremiah’s Ghost is as haunted and given over to intensities and anguish as one of H. P. Lovecraft’s protagonists, though pursued by inner rather than supernatural demons. Careening between the grandiose and the abject, he tries writing, women, travel, and drugs as his obsessive means of coming to terms with his own rage and sense of having been emotionally abused in this coming-of-age odyssey that’s both harrowing and moving.
Jeremiah's Ghost: An Apocalyptic Fantasy
Burdened by the weight of the past and the uncertainty of the future, Jeremiah sets out in search of the answers to his own mysteries, embarking on a journey that will carry him from the raves of New York to the Latin tropics to Israel’s Independence Hall, and back to an autumn evening in Sheep Meadow when the world was still whole.
A story of fathers and sons, self and shadows, Jeremiah’s Ghost traces the path of a young man through a landscape where memory is just another kind of fiction.
