Praise for "Ghosted"
"In spirit of Bishop-Stall's poker-playing protagonist, I made a bet with the author that I could wrap up my review with a four-word sentence capable of encapsulating the 'terrifying, ' 'pissed-off, ' 'life-affirming, ' 'hung-over' quality of Ghosted. I've lost that bet." --Jeff Charis-Carlson, "Iowa City Press-Citizen"
"This master of immersion journalism opts to give us a novel about a young man who makes a living writing suicide notes. Yes please." --"The National Post," "Most Anticipated Books of 2010"
"Grimly funny, terrifying and tender." --"Montreal Mirror"
"The unique voice heard throughout "Ghosted" is so heartbreakingly authentic. This is a voice whose wry tones are surely as addictive as the drugs abused by the tormented characters in Ghosted. This is a story that you never want to end." --"The Ottawa Citizen"
"It leaves you stunned. But then you realize you have just read a terrifying but moving and life-affirming paean to love, friendship, devotion, determination and all those other characteristics that make human beings such wonderfully fascinating creatures in real life and in richly imagined novels like "Ghosted."" --"The Edmonton Journal"
"The characters of "Ghosted" compose a rogue's gallery like no other. Most are drug addicted, hopelessly self-destructive, dangerously suicidal or just plain psychotic . . . It is exceedingly difficult to top a hotdog-selling, poker-playing, cocaine-addicted writer of suicide notes whose adventurous, bar-hopping girlfriend Willy is partially paralyzed, confined to a wheelchair and addicted to heroin." --"Calgary Herald"
"In "Ghosted," love and friendship are real and just as powerful as addiction and nightmares. Despite what the narrator might say, redemption isn't just something confined to bad novels." --Winnipeg Free Press
"Bishop-Stall is a major talent. His prose is so vivid, you'll feel the coke seeping down the back of your throat e

In Ghosted, love and friendship are real and just as powerful as addiction and nightmares. Despite what the narrator might say, redemption isn't just something confined to bad novels. Winnipeg Free Press
Bishop-Stall is a major talent. His prose is so vivid, you ll feel the coke seeping down the back of your throat even if you ve never done a line in your life . . . an unarguably unique voice, urgent and impossible to ignore. Now Magazine
A savage, heartfelt, exhilarating first novel . . . What makes this high-concept premise work is the book s a) heart, and b) voice. Which may, in the final analysis, be one and the same thing. Toro Magazine
One finishes Ghosted amazed by Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall s ability to cram three or four novels worth of incident and characters into one book. Impressive, ambitious and exhausting, Ghosted is a novel for those who don t scare easily. Globe and Mail
Ghosted is not for the faint of heartin places it's an unflinching exploration of depravity. But it is, above all, an often funny, always optimistic parable of victory over demons of despair, the ghosts of our failed selves. Linden MacIntyre, author of The Bishop s Man
Bukowski craggy and Hornby sweet . . . a smart book about smart guys who can t stop from acting dumb. The real pleasure, though, is in the lines: funny sad, funny strange, and funny zing! A hell of a first novel. Andrew Pyper, author of The Killing Circle and Lost Girls
