Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0380730561, Paperback)This debut novel begins with news of a death, but soon the dead are sitting up and demanding attention. Ramona must cope with a talkative sister-in-law and her husband, plus her grandparents, all dead, and all moving into her home that looks out on the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. She must endure their constant interference with the present. The past comes alive too in the novel's eponymous journal, one written in 1924 by the village historian and sculptor, a relative of Ramona's. Here the past and present are surreally intertwined.

A magic-realism novel on a woman painter in the Southwest and her nephew who live with dead relatives. One day the dead grandmother, who keeps house, gives her the journal of a dead sculptor to read. Old art meets new art in an analysis of the role of art in life.
