My Persistent Phantom

My Persistent Phantom

I have a confession to make. I have a relationship with a certain gentleman that has endured for more than forty years and yet continues to captivate me even today.

Does it lessen the intrigue that the target of my obsession would now be 185 years old? That he was short, bespeckled, had a long beard and unusually small hands and feet?

These are the opening paragraphs of My Persistent Phantom by Susan Hanes. The gentleman who has captivated her imagination all these years is the writer, Wilkie Collins, a sometimes overlooked associate of Charles Dickens.

Printed on Mohawk Superfine by Dupli-graphic. Quarter leather, sewn boards bookbinding, featuring handmade paper by Cave Paper. Edition of 20.
