FROM THE INSIDE DUSTJACKET FLAP: Like the late Lord Halifax, one of whose hobbies was the collection of gruesome tales of the supernatural, Danton Walker has found that ghosts manage to invade the lives of the most unexpected people. They came unbidden, and not particularly welcome, to all of the busy, noteworthy personalities who tell their own stories here at the risk of facing disbelief.
Here and today in this book, ghosts appear in such odd places as an ultra-modern penthouse, a spanking new ranch house, a theatre dressing room, even in the hectic city room of a metropolitan newspaper.
These things `don't happen'-but they did! What ghostly influence told Guthrie McClintic to mail an unsent letter which changed his whole career? What eerie agency caused a neighbour's mice to creep over into Mrs Raymond Massey's cellar whenever Death was an imminent guest in the house across the street? And what ghost dared to come up and see Mae West?
As told here by the famous Broadway columnist in the tradition of Lord Halifax's Ghost Book, these and other experiences come chillingly close to home.« less
