"Eric G. Wilson's Polaris Ghost is both disturbing and familiar, lucid in its individual parts and mysterious in the convergences of those parts. Told with the intellectual scope and curiosity of Guy Davenport but as seen from between the blades of grass of Blue Velvet (or behind the dumpster at Winkie's), it is this wonderful, porous thing, equal parts adventurous fiction and eccentric essay, a beautifully novel novel." - Gabriel Blackwell, author of Madeleine E.
"Incisive, sometimes alarming, sometimes deftly jarring, Polaris Ghost is a wonderfully uncomfortable unveiling of a life fraught with, well, life: parenting, addiction, struggle, and depression. Wilson's beautifully composed fragments gradually collage their way into a sharply incisive portrait of not just one life but many." - Brian Evenson, author of A Collapse of Horses
"You receive Polaris Ghost like a dark dream. But this is no fever-dream: the lucidity of Wilson’s prose is what makes this book spooky and off-kilter. Polaris Ghost reminds me of the early fiction of John Hawkes – The Cannibal or The Lime Twig – where the story’s world appears as though viewed through a microscope: both familiar and unfamiliar; detached but close-up; hypnotic. Savor this book. The rewards are plentiful." - John McNally, author of The Boy Who Really, Really Wanted to Have Sex: The Memoir of a Fat Kid.
