Anyone's Ghost by August Thompson

Genre: Literary Fiction 

Publisher: Penguin Putnam Inc. - Release Date: July 23, 2024 


The life of fifteen-year-old Theron David Alden is lonely. But everything changes when he encounters a book that becomes his constant companion. This captivating novel is described as one that will bring back memories, change you, and be a story you can't stop talking about with your friends.

An extraordinary debut novel in which the transforming love and friendship between two young men during one unforgettable teenage summer in rural New England haunts them into adulthood

It took three car crashes to kill Jake.

Theron David Alden is there for the first two: the summer they meet in rural New Hampshire, when he’s fifteen and anxious, and Jake’s seventeen and a natural; then six years later in New York City, those too-short, ecstatic, painful nights that change both their lives forever—the end of the dream and the longing for the dream and the dream itself, all at once.

Theron is not there for the third crash.

And yet, their story contains so much joy and the glorious, stupid simplicity of a boyhood joke; the devastation of insecurity; the way a great song can distill a universe; the limits of what we can know about each other; the mysterious, porous, ungraspable fault line between yourself and the person you love better than yourself; the beautiful, toxic elixir of need and hope and want.
