Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. In this charming fiction debut, a young woman moves to Manhattan in search of romance and excitement—only to find that her apartment is haunted by the ghost of a cantankerous Beat Generation writer in need of a rather huge favor.
For Eve Weldon, moving to Greenwich Village is a dream come true. But when Eve arrives, the only scribe she meets is a grumpy ghost named Donald, and the only writing she manages to do is for chirpy segments on a morning news program, Smell the Coffee.

Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Jun 08, Laurie rated it liked it. Based on the description- a ghost! Greenwich Village in the early 60s! I thought this book would be right up my alley. But sixty or so pages in, I was getting very dismayed.
I was finding it very hard to care about the protagonist, Eve, or, for that matter, anyone else including the ghost. But I kept with it, and the story slowly found its legs and gathered itself into a run, with the second half being reasonably satisfying. Eve Weldon has just moved from the Midwest to Based on the description- a ghost! Eve Weldon has just moved from the Midwest to Greenwich Village, Oa, the place where she knows her mother was happiest- possibly the only place she ever was happy.
She goes there expecting to find this same happiness; expecting, really, that nothing has changed in the Village in 50 years. This sounds like a teenager, but Greendich is in her 30s. Among other things, this novel is gteenwich belated coming of age story. While Eve never really did grow on me, the story did. The back stories of Donald and Klieg sel make the book.
I liked the ending. Jun 28, Nancy rated it it was ok. My original reaction to the writer’s strike a few years ago was irritation.
The Ghost of Greenwich Village
This was, after all, the last year of Scrubs, which I loved. Ah, you see, they don’t actually write their own stuff. I assume this would also include Rosie O’Donnell and Ellen who find terribly sincere and clever.
Again, it’s the writers. So our protagonist, Eventual Weldon, makes her way from Ohio to New York and snaps up a job as writer for a morning show. The way is sticky, however, and paved with politics grrenwich don’t even want to cross. Unwittingly Eve will as many writers have done in the past. I found it very interesting to see the back workings of interviews and segments. Not even Oprah could do everything that needs to be done. Vi,lage booker contacts the guest and the writer is given only a few hours to write a cohesive, intelligent introduction, be well read and current on all topics, call the guest and flesh out interesting directions for the interview then write a script for the segment down to the second.
The job of the writer is to provide a script that makes the anchor look brilliant and clever.
The interview questions are to be intelligent and provide a platform for the guest to tell the story but above all, the anchor must look good. Donald, the ghost, was an interesting distraction villabe ultimately did not capture my attention as much as the inner workings of a network. The back story is that Eve is looking for evidence of her mother’s existence in Beatnik New York from the ‘s.
Meanwhile, Eve shares an apartment with a ghost fillage Donald who lived at the same time in New York with Eve’s mother but didn’t know her but he is obsessed with publishing his lost works and wants Eve to transcribe for him. It was an enjoyable book and the writing is solid.
The ending lacked a cohesive resolution for me. I would have liked to have the stories for interconnected for my tastes. Still, it’s a good read. Dec 11, Sandie rated it really liked it. Eve Weldon is living her fantasy life.
Growing up in the Midwest, her mother dying early, left Eve lonely and longing for more. Her mother had a mysterious past that centered around the time she lived in Greenwich Village as a young woman before she married and had a family.
Gathering her courage, Eve takes off for New York. She is lucky enough to find an apartment she can afford, and soon she worms her way into a writing job.
The job is also an issue. Eve tries several things to shine, but each seems to backfire. Can she make a secure life in this new environment, or will it prove to be too much for her, leaving her to head back home to a more routine existence?
Eve is a character it is hard not to love. Her ingenuity, resourcefulness, and determination to make her dreams a reality draw the reader into her world.
This book is ggreenwich for readers ready to be entertained and left cheerful and inspired. Jan 30, Kim rated it liked it. This was a satifying read.
MRS – Interview with Lorna Graham
Nothing bad really happened to anyone and it was a good read. I liked the reference to some of the beat writers. Nov 09, Liz Fedor villagd it it was ok. Jun 03, Sofia rated it really liked it. Era un posto senza tempo e Eve voleva assaporarne la magia segreta. La nuova vita di Eve Weldon comincia proprio qui, in un luogo di cui lei avverte una magia segreta.
Solo Eve e solo a lei Donald detta il capolavoro che aveva dovuto lasciare incompiuto. Un luogo che esercita su Eve un fascino magico. Ho letto questo libro tutto d’un fiato. Consiglio di leggere questo libro a tutti coloro che hanno dei sogni e non si tirano indietro al momento di realizzarli e non hanno paura di accettare i cambiamenti.
Jul 14, Sara Strand rated it it was ok. I have to be honest. This isn’t a book that I would think to recommend to people because I struggled through it. I didn’t like Eve. I don’t like people like Eve. People like Eve are people who have a hard time adjusting to the real world.
Now, never having lost a parent I can’t say how I would feel if I lost my mom.

But I will tell you- never would I feel the need to try to re-live my mother’s life, which is very much what Eve is trying to do. It seems to me that it would b Ok. It vilpage to me that it would be obvious that the times and life of an area would be very much different several generations apart I also didn’t understand the whole Donald thing.
Yes, he’s a ghost. Yes, he wants Eve to write his book and she learns a lot about the generations and rgazza new fashion designer friend because of Donald. I had a hard time even wanting to read sections of the book where he’s present because it didn’t make sense.
Why even have that as a character or part of the story line? The parts of this book that I found fascinating was the hustle and bustle of her working on a morning show. Not only was it interesting to somewhat learn about that type of job, but it seemed more of a real life scenario that could happen to a single woman coming to the big city from the Midwest. THAT part of the story made absolute sense. Often times I felt myself thinking Eve was kind ragazzs a dumb girl who, though she has real world experience and a great education, she is a person you’d pass up and assume she’s just another idiot in the big city.
I wouldn’t feel sorry for her or her plight if she was one of my friends. Now, if you enjoy a chick lit book, or if you like stories about women trying to empower greenwkch this would be a good book for you. Eve Weldon moves to Greenwich Village searching for a connection to her dead mother who was an artist there in the ‘s.
