Love, Ghosts and Nose Hair

Author: Steven Herrick



A special reissue of a bestselling Australian classic from award-winning author Steven Herrick.

Jack is an everyday sixteen-year-old boy. He’s obsessed with Annabel, sport and nose hair. He’s also obsessed with a ghost …

There’s a ghost in our house

in a red evening dress,

black stockings

and Mum’s sling back shoes.

Her hair whispers

over white shoulders

as she dances through the rooms.

A bittersweet comedy about the infinite promise of first love and the everlasting sorrow of grief, Love, Ghosts & Nose Hair was shortlisted for the CBCA Book of the Year: Older Readers and New South Wales Premier’s Literary Awards.
