Ghost World is the story of Enid and Rebecca, teenage friends facing the unwelcome prospect of adulthood, and the uncertain future of their complicated relationship. Clowes conjures a balanced semblance, both tender and objective, of their fragile existence, capturing the mundane thrills and hourly tragedies of a waning adolescence, as he follows a tenuous narrative thread through the fragmented lives of these two fully realised young women.

On a dead planet, a captain and his crew encounter an unknown evil No life can survive on Unseeli—at least, not anymore. This little planet on the edge of the Empire has no oceans, rivers, or lakes—only an endless forest of metal trees, tall enough to scrape the stratosphere. Ten years ago, the indigenous people stormed out of the forest in rebellion, and Captain John Silence was there for the massacre that left Unseeli’s natives extinct and the planet completely lifeless save for the engineers who mine its invaluable metals. When the mining operation goes off the rails, Silence will be called back to the world that still haunts his nightmares. The miners have erected a force shield around the planet and cut off all communication with the Empire. Backed up by a few professional killers, Silence lands at the mine in hopes of discovering what’s gone wrong. Getting into Unseeli will be tough—but getting out could prove impossible.

An owl informs Màrs, a Gandalf sort of time-sorcerer, on an outrageously dangerous elf, Moyo. Moyo plans to travel back to the big bang, which will destroy not only the Earth, but the entire universe. Through the American mass spying system, the NSA, Màrs chooses to send Lite to her ancestor Roger in the aim of damaging Moyo’s Time Wheel which he needs for his return-to-the-big-bang plan. But after going to Roger’s time to prevent him from killing his school teacher, an unexpected relativist effect turns Lite into a baby. Shocked and surprised, Màrs finds no better solution than to place the one-year-old Lite with two horrible aunts, the Mauroux sisters. Her placement involves in fact a baby swap which Lite later investigates and whose story elements she manipulates to frame her aunts. By a strange but fair justice, the Mauroux sisters end up in jail.

Woooooooo-hooooooo. Five people: four are living; three are strangers; two are sisters; one, a teenage hotel chambermaid, has fallen to her death in a dumbwaiter. But her spirit lingers in the world, straining to recall things she never knew. And one night all five women find themselves in the smooth plush environs of the Global Hotel, where the intersection of their very different fates make for this playful, defiant, and richly inventive novel. Forget room service: this is a riotous elegy, a deadpan celebration of colliding worlds, and a spirited defense of love. Blending incisive wit with surprising compassion, Hotel World is a wonderfully invigorating, life-affirming book. From the Trade Paperback edition.
