Standouts include interview with Amos Oz about living on a kibbutz; Greedy Sleep, about sleep eating on Ambien as HIV kills your partner; Breaking your Holy Bone (lower back) and the haunting of old injuries.

#1 with a bullet: Yokosuka Blue Line, on being lost and drunk on Tokyo's trains in being riding on a submarine (!!!) - ordered Steven Dunn's book as a result. ( )

The theme of "Ghosts" doesn't really hang together; there are some memoirs yes, but not many ghosts, literal or metaphorical. Still, the pieces by Bernard Cooper (on sleep eating), Sheila Heti (imagining Albert Speer although whether we need another version Speer is doubtful) and Sandra Newman with extracts of her new novel, The Heavens, are highlights ( )
