A House Without Spirits

A book by David Homel.

David Homel

When Paul is hired to write a monograph of the Montreal photographer John Marchuk, he assumes he'll be able to turn over the eccentric project in a matter of weeks.

Little does he know that over the next few months his visits with Marchuk, in a house stuffed with boxes stacked floor to ceiling with his life's archive, will expose an emptiness in his own home.

In this ninth novel, David Homel delivers some of his most memorable characters to date — reclusive artists, disaffected life partners, wandering ghosts, cult-affiliated nuns — in a contemporary Montreal noir that reveals how much we learn about ourselves when we begin to ask questions of others.
