There’s something wrong next door. At least that’s what neighbours Howie Jeffries and Emily Phane both think. Howie is an accidental recluse, content with his fishing and dreams of someday sailing away on a boat. Emily couldn’t be more different: she’s irreverent, outgoing and seemingly well adjusted.
But when Emily returns from college to care for her dying grandfather, Howie can’t help but notice her increasingly erratic behavior - not to mention her newfound love of nocturnal gardening.
"The Household Spirit is very special. There’s a pleasing familiarity to it but it’s also fresh, funny and unpredictable." (Roddy Doyle)
"Rarely have I been so captivated by a novel. Its compassion, wisdom, warmth. I loved it." (Nathan Filer, author of The Shock of the Fall)
