The Upstairs House

The Upstairs House - Julia Fine

The Upstairs House


A Buzzfeed Most Anticipated Book of the Year - A The Millions Most Anticipated Book of the YearA massively entertaining and slyly enlightening story nestled inside another story like a ghost within its host. --Kathleen Rooney, author of Cher Ami and Major Whittlesey and Lillian Boxfish Takes a WalkIn this provocative meditation on new motherhood--Shirley Jackson meets The Awakening--a postpartum woman's psychological unraveling becomes intertwined with the ghostly appearance of children's book writer Margaret Wise Brown.
There's a madwoman upstairs, and only Megan Weiler can see her.Ravaged and sore from giving birth to her first child, Megan is mostly raising her newborn alone while her husband travels for work. Physically exhausted and mentally drained, she's also wracked with guilt over her unfinished dissertation--a thesis on mid-century children's literature.Enter a new upstairs neighbor: the ghost of quixotic children's book writer Margaret Wise Brown--author of the beloved classic Goodnight Moon--whose existence no one else will acknowledge. It seems Margaret has unfinished business with her former lover, the once-famous socialite and actress Michael Strange, and is determined to draw Megan into the fray. As Michael joins the haunting, Megan finds herself caught in the wake of a supernatural power struggle--and until she can find a way to quiet these spirits, she and her newborn daughter are in terrible danger.Using Megan's postpartum haunting as a powerful metaphor for a woman's fraught relationship with her body and mind, Julia Fine once again delivers an imaginative and "barely restrained, careful musing on female desire, loneliness, and hereditary inheritances" (Washington Post).
