A Jealous GhostThere is something rather disuieting about Sallie Declan a young American in London and it is not just her obsession with Henry James’s The Turn of the Screw the subject of her PhD thesis. This is the first time I've read anything by Wilson but as it is a sort of version of The Turn Of The Screw by Henry James I felt James would serve as a sort of go between for usThis book follows the fortunes of a young American student in England who is writing a dissertation on James' most famous ghost story She is very much a deconstructionist and post modernist keen to coin her own critical vocabulary and bring her own uniue vision to bear on the text At something of an impasse she takes up a job as a nanny to two young children with an absent presumed deceased mother who live in a country estateAt this point the two stories James' and Wilson's start to blur Things build and build and there is a growing sense of dread and disorientationDespite all the skilled inter and meta textual weaving I did leave the novel a little dissatisfied Much of it hinges on a kind of pathology especially a sexual one that needed to my mind character grounding Almost as if the tale was being viewed from the wrong end of the looking glass
