AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Everyone has a story to tell, provided they have the right words to tell it. Brihanna can talk a blue streak, but writing has never been her thing. Best to leave that to experts like Claudia, who has the class and literary skills to give her chaotic, violent story the texture of tragedy. But what if the ghost writer has her own demons to exorcise, or only wants to stir up old ghosts? "The Ghost Writer" is a story about stories, the lies we tell ourselves and the truths we daren't tell anyone.' Source: www.mtc.com.au (Sighted 11/03/2007).
