From the publisher

A gorgeous modern love-story about two young men who meet, almost fall in-love, and find their lives caught up in three car crashes - for fans of Call Me By Your Name

'You know those books that you take with you everywhere? That you won’t stop talking about to your friends? That bring it all back? That change you? Anyone’s Ghost is that book' - Junot Diaz, author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao


The lonely life of fifteen-year-old Theron David Alden is transformed when he meets Jake. Older, cooler, more confident and startlingly beautiful, Jake likes the same bands, the same drugs, and has the same drive to oblivion.

Over the course of two decades, Theron and Jake get high, drift apart, and are brought hurtling back together, until a final collision tears them apart forever.

Theron wants Jake, and he wants to be Jake. But is Jake brave enough to want him back?

A gorgeous modern love story about the lives that change us, and the loves that haunt us, Anyone’s Ghost will break your heart.

'An overwhelmingly beautiful love story. This book will make you cry’ Jonathan Safran Foer, author of Everything Is Illuminated
