Winifred Rudge attempts to write a novel about a woman haunted by the ghost of Jack the Ripper, and finds herself the object of spectral phenomena as she arrives in London to find her friend John missing under mysterious circumstances.

HARPERCOLL

“A brilliant, perceptive, and deeply moving fable.”
Boston Sunday Globe

 

Publishers Weekly calls Gregory Maguire’s Lost “a deftly written, compulsively readable modern-day ghost story.” Brilliantly weaving together the literary threads of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan, Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol, and the Jack the Ripper stories, the bestselling author of The Wicked Years canon creates a captivating fairy tale for the modern world. With Lost, Maguire—who re-imagined a darker, more dangerous Oz, and inspired the creation of the Tony Award-winning Broadway blockbuster Wicked—delivers a haunting tale of shadows and phantoms and things going bump in the night, confirming his reputation as “one of contemporary fiction’s most assured myth-makers” (Kirkus Reviews).

Ugh, it's just way too easy to "lost" interest in this stupid book.
