Mark Marimen has for years been enmeshing readers in that special blend of myth, memory and experience that makes ghostlore something that-like these beautiful, preternatural phenomena themselves-refuses to be defined. He is enormously attentive to the history of the state's many treasures: her people, her homes and institutions, her lonely roads and shorelines. At every turn, Marimen finds something lovely, something with a story untold, something precious. He treats Indiana's history and, yes, ghosts, with the same tender care as one might handle a yellowed love letter, the threadbare frock of a longdead child, or any of the dear mementos of days gone past. This delicious volume, Marimen's latest transcript of the haunting of his state is-as his previous works-careful, revealing, elusive, transcendent: decidedly undefinable-and incredibly satisfying.
