Shifting between memory and reality, filmmaker Ida Mae Glick watches her world stagger into focus from the perspective of her hospital bed, as powerful truths emerge about her relationships with the people in her life. Framed within the context of the classic films that have shaped and inspired Ida Mae, Shadows and Ghosts is full of twists and cleverly layered with revelations about family and identity. Froman's honed prose, comic wit and scalpel-edged exploration of human nature make this novel uniquely engrossing and very, very funny. The characters (alive and dead) and their dilemmas will haunt you long after you've turned the last page.
