Gerard is a timid librarian whose only real friend is his pen pal, a beautiful Englishwoman named Alice, who is sadly confined to a wheelchair after a horrific car accident. They’ve been sending passionate letters to each other since they were 13, but they never exactly met. In fact, Alice refuses to let Gerard come to visit her.

The answers are yes, yes, and wait and see… Please join us to discuss The Ghost Writer by John Harwood.
