Jeanette Winterson

Ghost Stories: Night Side of the River

The Global Stage

Gloriously Gothic and unnervingly contemporary, this is a blend of chilling short stories and the author's real-life encounters with the supernatural. Winterson explores grief, revenge, and the myriad ways in which technology can disrupt the boundary between life and death. Our lives are digital, exposed and always-on. We can find out everything about our world, but we know little about the world of ghosts. They wander the metaverse just as they haunt our homes and our memories, seeking new ways to connect, to live among us, to remind us, to tempt us, to take their revenge. These are the stories of the dead – of those we've lost, loved, forgotten...and feared.
