I'm Looking Through You is an engagingly candid investigation of what it means to be "haunted". Looking back on the spirits who invaded her family home, Boylan launches a full investigation with the help of a group of earnest, if questionable, ghostbusters. Boylan also examines the ways we find connections between the people we once were and the people we become. With wit and eloquence, Boylan shows us how love, forgiveness, and humor help us find peace - with our ghosts, with our loved ones, and with the uncanny boundaries, real and imagined, between men and women.
"Boylan writes with a measured comedic timing and a light touch, affecting a pitch-perfect balance between sorrow, skepticism, and humor." (Publishers Weekly)

Very good but not really a "Ghost" book
This was a very well written book but for the most part it wasn't a ghost story. There were a few creepy parts in there but that wasn't the point of the story. But, if you wanted a glimpse into the life of a transgendered person, with a few ghost stories thrown in, this is the book for you.

A good memoir made better by a spirited reading by the author
We all live with ghosts. Jenny Boylan is perceptive - and honest - enough to acknowledge it. She covers somewhat familiar ground (if you've read her other works) in a fresh and engaging way.
While I enjoyed the book, hearing the author read it... no... PERFORM it, makes it even more enjoyable. Boylan's humor, poignancy and generosity of spirit for all the absurd and alluring characters she encounters on her life's journey captures their complicated, paradoxical, relatable humanity with a descriptive power likely to haunt the reader long after putting down the story. I got lost in this memoir through the author's skill as a writer and storyteller. Thank you, Ms Boylan, for letting the reader/listener accompany you in spirit, as you revisit the places and people (child, student, parent, sibling) you've been along your journey so far.
