I Am the Ghost Here

Reading I Am the Ghost Here — Kim Samek

I’ve never read anything quite like this before. It’s fiction, that’s not new. It’s a short story, but I’ve read plenty of those before. Yet somehow I had no idea what I was getting myself in for. I loved it. I feel moved by it though I don’t know quite how. It feels extremely real.

The experience of watching a brother become something I don’t recognise is deeply, painfully familiar.

Parents unfit for one another, I’ve felt that too, that pressure cooker.
