BOOK REVIEW: A HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS by Paul Tremblay

Paul Tremblay’s A Head Full of Ghosts is, simply put, the best book I’ve read this year. Paul Tremblay has constructed a masterful depiction of the unraveling of a family in crisis while simultaneously giving a tender and nuanced portrayal of the tenacity of the loving bond between siblings. It is at once frightening, tender, and remarkably intelligent (but if you know Tremblay, you HAVE to expect that last part). At every time you think you have a handle on where this story is going, he shifts the angle and gives the reader a fresh view of what’s happening that is deeper and both more and less certain. Anyone who thinks this is going to be another garden variety possession tale or take down of “reality” entertainment has got another thing coming. A Head Full of Ghosts is an absolute triumph, and my favorite thing both this year and that I’ve ever read of his.
