Yet the hitches are brief, and Haunted Houses more often has an engrossing brilliance, an intensity that stills your breath. It didn’t occur to Emily that Nina and Anna loved each other, even though they were unhappy and sometimes hated each other. Emily comforted herself with the idea that plots were like skirts, you either did or you didn't use things like that. And, being so stringent, it loses some of the local colour that could have distinguished (say) Emily from Jane. Grace believes her dolls come alive at night and talk against her, and has a mother who likes animals more than people.

Nina’s mother insisted on life, would not give it up, and she was the barrier that kept death from Nina.When Haunted Houses came out to little fanfare (“I think there was one positive review”) Tillman decided to make peace with the fact she was never going to be a bestseller. Events and details arrest your reading on every page, conjuring experience in all its shades of feeling. We zip through affairs, exploration of sexuality, death, situationships, preferring the company of books, preferring the company of their landlady, dating boys who are obsessed with Jack Kerouac, drag bars and a fast-changing America. Despite this, Tillman’s book is an accomplished and meaningful feat, representing women’s internal and external quandaries, while also exploring darker sides of human nature.

But I loved this element of the book, overall Haunted Houses felt like a guilty pleasure, it felt like I was peering into the lives of these women, seeing their ugly sides and mentalities towards themselves, their relationships and work, sides that the average person would rather die than reveal to those around them.

I loved this book, I savored it — it stuck in my head all through the day until I got back to it again (couldn't put it down. Jane's occasionally violent father reads her the Gettysburg Address at bedtimes, while Emily's parents are FDR Democrats who only privately concede she may be normal.
