Early Praise for Giving Up the Ghost:

“An original, deeply moving memoir. . . [a] testament to friendship, love and survival.”Kirkus Reviews 

“[A] brutally honest memoir. . . an evocative glimpse into one man’s past, so different from what his ‘normal’ present would suggest.”Booklist

“A highly unusual, wildly specific story about love and death and confusion. But its power comes from an universal realization: Very often, our memory of a person matters more than whatever actually happened.”
Chuck Klosterman, author of Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs
Giving Up The Ghost is powerful and evocative, with a painfully vivid sense of Midwest teenage-wasteland dread. It’s an elegiac ghost story that can make you wonder if there’s any difference between being young and being haunted.”
Rob Sheffield, author of Love Is a Mixtape
