Genre: Poetry / Paranormal

Summary: “Noisesome Ghosts is a collection of mainly found poems that investigates the phenomenon of ghosts and poltergeists that can speak and write, crossing the entire documented history of these mysterious entities from the second millennium BCE ghost of the Biblical prophet Samuel to the current case of the so-called demons in Seattle.”

My review of Noisesome Ghosts:

This poetry collection is one of a kind. I’ve never read anything quite like it!

These poems are recreated by Clay in such a unique way and the formatting, while sometimes a tad confusing, really express the living human beings as well as the dead souls’ thoughts and fears.

An example of this is:

“Are you buried in the garden?                     No

Can you tell us where?                       In the well

Do you mean under the fir tree?    In the cellar ”

This passage strikes me especially because of the communication between life and death and the ways ghosts want to go back to the land of the living.

Overall, I think that this poetry collection is fascinating and very well-written.
