Part stories of spirits and part intellectual reflections on the spiritual, In Ghostly Japan is a phantasmagoric wander through a foreign landscape. Here can be found a mountain of skulls, beautiful specters called forth in love, and a gruesome rivalry. Interspersed between these ghostly tales are philosophical contemplations on Buddhism, poetry, and existence, by the author, a Westerner who found his true home in the heart of Japan. Bohemian and writer PATRICK LAFCADIO HEARN (1850-1904) was born in Greece, raised in Ireland, and worked as newspaper reporter in the United States before decamping to Japan. He also wrote The Romance of the Milky Way (1899), and Kwaidon (1904).
