review: giving up the ghost by eric nuzum

As an adolescent, Eric Nuzum thought a young girl was haunting him. His memoir explores his reckless teenage years which resulted in him being admitted to the psychiatric ward and his friendship with the one person who gave continuous support during that time. Although Nuzum provides an incomplete look at his life by writing of only a brief period in his life, it is a vividly described (see the scene that costs him his DJ gig at the college radio station), cohesive narrative that is both enthralling and illuminating.
4/5
