Summary
"The idea of mystery in fiction is a subject as elusive as 'a whispered invitation, a siren song, a flickering light in the distance.' Maud Casey reaches beyond the usual tool kit of fictional elements in pursuit of the ethereal and uncanny to ask: Where does mystery reside in a work of fiction? From Shirley Jackson to Paul Yoon, from spirit photography to the radical nature of empathy. Casey looks at how mystery is created and, in space of uncertainty and unknowing, searches for questions rather than answers"--Provided by publisher
