About the Book

A Reunion of Ghosts

In the waning days of 1999, the last of the Alters --- three damaged but wisecracking sisters who share an apartment on Manhattan’s Upper West Side --- decide it’s time to close the circle of the family curse by taking their own lives. But first, Lady, Vee and Delph must explain the origins of that curse and how it has manifested throughout the preceding generations. Unspooling threads of history, personal memory and family lore, they weave a mesmerizing account that stretches back a century to their great-grandfather, a brilliant scientist whose professional triumph became the terrible legacy that defines them.

A suicide note crafted by three bright, funny women, A REUNION OF GHOSTS is the final chapter of a saga lifetimes in the making --- one that is inexorably intertwined with the story of the 20th century itself.
