Haunted Travels of Indiana by Mark Marimen

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Mark Marimen has for years been enmeshing readers in that special blend of myth, memory and experience that makes ghostlore something that—like these beautiful, preternatural phenomena themselves—refuses to be defined. He is enormously attentive to the history of the state’s many treasures: her people, her homes and institutions, her lonely roads and shorelines. At every turn, Marimen finds something lovely, something with a story untold, something precious. He treats Indiana’s history and, yes, ghosts, with the same tender care as one might handle a yellowed love letter, the threadbare frock of a long-dead child, or any of the dear mementos of days gone past. This delicious volume, Marimen’s latest transcript of the haunting of his state is—as his previous works—careful, revealing, elusive, transcendent: decidedly undefinable—and incredibly satisfying.
