A novel by

 
 
In this delightful debut novel, Helen Slavin takes the ghost story into a new dimension. Ever since she was a child, Annie Colville has been talking to the dead. She knows they're dead because for some reason they're always dressed in chocolate brown. But Annie's grown up now, and things are getting serious. Especially after she falls for and marries Evan Bees. It's hard enough to lose someone you love; but what if you know they could come back to you? And they just . . . don't? During her long wait for her missing husband to come back to her, in chocolate brown or not, Annie searches through her mother's vast collection of lovers for the other missing man in her life - her father - and struggles with the questions her gift asks of her. Quirky, irreverent, moving and a little bit spooky, The Extra Large Medium will charm you completely - even as it's raising the hairs on the back of your neck.
