Product description


I loved this book--it's the best take on ghosts and how they work that I've ever read. Scary and mad but real, with crackling dialogue, From Away is a rare creature: a proper novel and a proper ghost story. I massively enjoyed it.
-- Steven Moffat, co-creator of Sherlock and writer/producer of Dr. Who

From Away is a complex, surprising, and haunting novel. Sutton's trademark wit lives within these pages, but here he reaches deeper, into a dark place, and finds something richer, something more human, than in any of his previous books. This is a page-turner of a different kind: mysterious, weird, and deeply affecting.
-- Tod Goldberg, New York Times-bestselling author of Gangsterland and Living Dead Girl

Phoef Sutton's From Away is a unique trip of a book. It starts off as a family drama, then morphs into an intense ghost story. It's about finding love in the real world and finding freedom to escape into the real hereafter. It's funny, wild, and touching, and not like any other novel I've ever read. Check it out.
-- Robert Ward, author of Red Baker and Four Kinds of Rain

"What's lovely about From Away is its ability to be unassuming. Sam is a skeptic, and he doesn't exactly love having this gift of sight. He's just a screw-up without a plan, trying to make his sister and niece feel safe and loved, even as he craves the reassurance for himself. His narration is full of self-deprecating humor without being overly self-conscious, and he's able to surprise with occasional nuggets of wisdom... While Sam's spooks are very real in the novel, they also serve as a broader metaphor that explores the complexities of grief: how isolating it can be, how destabilizing it is and how connection and love help us to live through it."
--Portland Press-Herald
