This is NOT a story about ghosts.
Laurence S. Hewitt
Jan was interesting,very sensitive and complex... so it's frustrating that there is not a lot of information about her, aside from her book and "Wikipedia".
L. Ross
It's the kind of book that never truly closes after you've read the last sentence, snapped the book shut, and placed it in your bookshelf.

A scary book by an actress who claimed she was haunted for 12 years in her lovely, historic Greenwich Village townhouse. But when she and her family finally move, the hauntings follow them. She begins to think she herself is haunted, not the dwellings, and she remembers earlier incidents of psychic activity in her life. The author died under mysterious circumstances at a relatively young age before the book was published. The book gives an interesting slant on bohemian New York City life in the 1950s and 1960s. A must for people interested in haunted houses of New York.

This is not your average hum-drum or hysterical "haunted house" account.
It's the kind of book that never truly closes after you've read the last sentence, snapped the book shut, and placed it in your bookshelf. You return to this account again and again throughout the years in an attempt to solve the non-fictional mystery the writer couldn't. It resides in a particulary special and permanent place in the back of my mind at all times....It's THAT kind of book.

A lot of people here are offended by the writer's dated style. But go beyond and the story is true and terrifying (the publisher adds an epilogue of sorts). This is a nightmare that happened.

Jan Bartell and her husband Fred move into an apartment in Greenwich Village, NY. It is there that her psychic abilities first make themselves known. Jan's awareness opens to that which is unseen by most, yet sensed by many. As an actress she is skilled in the art of illusion But this is real life. Her life. This book is a true account of her experiences which began at 14 West 10th St. Fearful yes, but curious too, Jan begins a spiritual search seeking knowledge of what and how the things that go bump in the night can be. When it all began, she did not believe in a spirit world. The couple moves, the hauntings continue, they move again.

I truly enjoyed this one. It is written not as a frightening ghost story but one person's journey through 12 years of strange phenomena. There is humor, sarcasm, sorrow, mystery and a feeling of exhausted desperation. A need for peace. It is an intriguing story. I like that the author includes the titles of her research into the occult and esoteric teachings in her attempt to gain insight and understanding. I must thank my Goodreads friend for her recommendation.

Jan and her story are fascinating. If you have any depth at all you'll love it. I have read it more than once because I guess I didn't want it to end, {except the sad parts about her pets}. If anyone knows anything about Jan I wish they'd leave a comment about this review. I'll find it. I'd like to know more about Jan. Where are her relatives ? Any of her friends still living ? Jan was interesting,very sensitive and complex... so it's frustrating that there is not a lot of information about her, aside from her book and "Wikipedia". She was unique enough to deserve a biography. I read a rumor that Jan had prior suicide attempts. But I also found it very ODD that Jan would commit suicide before her book was actually published. Think about that. You are about to publish your first book, manuscript is done and accepted, all that. Then you kill yourself ? Why her death did not receive more investigation I can't figure, even with the depression and prior supposed suicide attempts I've heard about. It just doesn't figure. Kind if like Marilyn Monroe's "suicide", or Inger Stevens "suicide". Just because a person attempts suicide in their life does not mean a ruling of suicide should be automatic when they do die. What an easy excuse,"everyone knows,she was suicidal"... and the person who did the crime of ending Jan's life would KNOW that. Just use the suicide excuse. Is that what happened to Jan ?
