Description - Spirit House by Mark Dapin
Long ago, Jimmy Reubens was a POW on the Thai-Burma Railway. For more than four decades, he has staved off the ghosts of his past by drinking too much, outstaying his welcome at his local RSL, and bickering with his three closest mates. But the past won't stay buried forever. When his thirteen-year-old grandson comes to stay after his parents' marriage breaks up, Jimmy has a chance to finally begin to lay his ghosts to rest, but first he has to tell their stories. Spirit House is funny, wise, disturbing and deeply moving, written by the award-winning author of King of the Cross.
