***WINNER OF THE 2018 MAINE LITERARY AWARD FOR SPECULATIVE FICTION*** "An incredibly charming novel about writing, the afterlife, and trying to move on in the here-and-now, even when you don't know how to get from point A to point B. . . . American Ghost is an excellent read."--B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog "Will keep you guessing from start to the surprising ending. American Ghost is clever, quirky, puzzling, disturbing, and truly original." --John Nichols, author of The Milagro Beanfield War "Fantastic (and phantasmagoric), utterly original in its depiction of an afterlife where ghosts are driven to conclude their own unfinished tales, and set in a backwoods Maine populated by meth-dealers and motorcyclists, live-wires and lost souls, American Ghost will haunt you long after you've turned the last page." --Paul Doiron, author of The Poacher's Son and Editor Emeritus of Down East: The Magazine of Maine "The fact that Thumb Rivera is dead is the least of his problems. In this supple, dark and genuinely funny novel, Paul Guernsey tells the tale of a goodhearted stoner who has to avenge his own murder before he can even think about the sweet hereafter. American Ghost will make you want to believe." --Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of The Deep End of the Ocean "A modern-day ghost story set in a gritty gang underworld, replete with enticing elements of both murder mystery and revenge thriller; rarely can a book claim to be so genuinely ghostwritten. . . . At times utterly chilling and yet also curiously affecting, this is a story like no other." --Grey Malkin, Folk Horror Revival "Motorcycles from underworld to underworld until all that remains is the reader's own gyrating, tremulous heart. So pull on your black boots, clip your broken wings onto the handlebars, slide your spirit board into the saddlebag, and whatever you do, hang on tight." --Abby Frucht, author of Polly's Ghost
