William "Dead" Kennedy is in trouble. He''s thirty-two, in love with his ex-wife, has lost his job, and he''s been dreaming about ghost roads again. Sometimes a guy is haunted for a really good reason. -- Nebula and World Fantasy Award finalist -- A Book Sense Notable Book -- Best of the Year: Booklist, Locus, San Francisco Chronicle -- A Locus bestseller "Stewart''s quicksilver wit makesPerfect Circle perfectly hilarious. And, a supremely skilled storyteller, he saves the best for last." --Texas Monthly "Stewart''s mastery of Will''s first-person narration is unflinching and unfaltering. The voice conjured here is absolutely authentic and affecting." --Washington Post "Stewart''s compelling account of how DK comes to grips with his ghosts, both actual and metaphorical, is alternately poignant and hilarious, with some genuinely creepy moments and one or two powerful jolts.... Compelling ... with strong potential for crossing over into the mainstream." --Publishers Weekly "All-around terrific."--Booklist (starred review) "By turns heartbreaking and hilarious,Perfect Circle is ... an impressive example of an author using genre resources to stake out a territory that, for the moment at least, no one but he occupies. --Locus "A read-at-one-go novel.... Everything is both stated and understated, elegant, full of the mundane horror and fear that inform a normal, frustrated life.... And it is well, well worth the reading. A highly recommended work." --F&SF Sean Stewart''s much-anticipated eighth novel is a dark, funny, fast-moving thriller that you won''t want to put down. William "Dead" Kennedy has problems. He''s haunted by family, by dead people with unfinished business, and by those perfect pop songs that you can''t get out of your head. He''s a 32-year-old Texan still in love with his ex-wife. He just lost his job at Pet-Co for eating cat food. His air-conditioning is broken, there''s no good music on the radio, and he''s been dreaming about ghost roads. When Will''s cousin ("My dad married your Aunt Dot''s half-sister") calls in the middle of the night about a dead girl haunting his garage, it seems like an easy way to make a thousand dollars. But nothing is ever that simple, especially when family is involved. Will''s mother is planning a family reunion of epic proportions. Will''s ex-wife is married to a former Marine. His twelve-year-old daughter Megan thinks Will needs someone to look after him. And recently his dead relatives seem to want something from him. +++ punk attitude: country & western life +++ "Perfect Circle is a perfect read, exciting, unique, everything here but the Second Coming, but, Sean Stewart himself is the prize. What a talent. Write on, my man. Write on." --Joe Lansdale "Needy Ghosts, bar fights, concealed weapons, R.E.M., and ramen noodles--Perfect Circle is an irreverent Texas treat. Sean Stewart is one bright, funny writer." --Stewart O''Nan "Will Kennedy has some troublesome relatives. Especially the dead ones.Perfect Circle is Sean Stewart at his spooky, funny, sad, and haunting best." --Karen Joy Fowler   "A ghost story for grown-ups, frightening, funny, and finally redemptive. It kept me up way past my bedtime." --Harley Jane Kozak "I read it all in one gulp, by turns fearful and joyful for Stewart''s likable loser protagonist." --Cory Doctorow "If Oprah read science fiction...This quirky, engaging novel tells the story of William "Dead" Kennedy, a thirtysomething former punk rocker and down-on-his-luck divorced dad--who sees ghosts. After a visit to his haunted cousin goes horribly wrong, "DK" finds himself getting lots of attention--mostly the wrong kind--from both the living and the dead. Funny and thought-provoking!" --Carol Schneck, Schuler Books and Music, Okemos, MI "My favorites among Sean Stewart''s books are those that hover on the edge of our reality. His characters, like William "Dead" Kennedy are much like my friends and relatives -- although if any of my relatives are seeing ghosts, they haven''t mentioned this to me. Will leads a not-quite life in Texas, working in dead end jobs, and yearning to reconnect with his ex-wife, and trying to avoid ghosts. When a cousin calls with a ghost-busting request, his financial offer is more than Will can resist.But accepting the job opens Will up to a whole new level of darkness. Great prose (Stewart has some of the best metaphors going) and a melancholy mood, like music half-remembered." --Maryelizabeth Hart, Mysterious Galaxy Bookshop, San Diego, CA Sean Stewart is the author of the "I Love Bees" and "Beast" search operas, two short stories and seven novels:Perfect Circle, The Night Watch, Nobody''s Son, Clouds End, Passion Play, Resurrection Man, andGalveston. With Jordan Weisman, he is the author ofCathy''s BookandCathy''s Key. His novels have received the Aurora, Arthur Ellis, Sunburst, Canadian Library, and World Fantasy awards. He lives in Davis, CA, with his wife and two daughters.  … (lisätietoja)

Will is a loser with the ability to see ghosts. Unfortunately they are even more creepy than he is. This one is intense and moves along well - I kept diving back in to it. I never quite warmed to the protagonist, but I think that was intentional. It also seemed like a hate letter to Houston - it's not often a city is described as so unbearable. ( )

Some parts of this book were tedious, but the good parts were very good and made up for the tedious parts.
The main character sees dead people and it really messes up his life - he messes up his life. And when he loses it, he wakes up and starts to live. Really live his life. ( )
  VhartPowers | Dec 27, 2018 |
I had high hopes for this -- it started out strong. I really enjoyed Stewart's writing style throughout. I think it hit a point, though, where something changed and I didn't enjoy it as much, and I was reading it more to finish it than for the I-can't-stop-reading-this-is-so-good" factor. I have to think it through some more to see if I bump it up a star or not. It might be a 3.5. ( )
  emblue | Jan 3, 2016 |
I enjoyed this book about hauntings both seen and unseen. I especially liked the characters' interactions, notably between Will and his daughter Meghan, and between Will and the ghosts he encounters. ( )
  krin5292 | Feb 27, 2015 |
The bad: it's the sort of book without a firm conclusion.
The good: everything else. There's no firm conclusion because this is a book that reads a lot like life, about not being able to know everything.
the neutral: I'm having a harder time understanding books that someone's father or motherhood is one of the protagonist's main motivation. ( )
