Summary
"Inspired by conversations with emigrants from Laos and Cambodia, Consoling Ghosts is a sustained contemplation of relationships with the dying and the dead. Jean M. Langford invites us to consider alternate ways of facing death, conducting relationships with the dead and dying, and addressing the effects of violence that continue to reverberate in bodies and social worlds"--
