Men & Apparitions is about photography, “New Men,” ethnography, family history, interpreting images, growing up, falling apart, and just about everything else in its own wonky way, featuring Clover Adams, a praying mantis named Mr. Petey and a kindly elderly painter in Amsterdam, but ultimately it a brilliant novel about, funny, charming, intelligent, sensitive man trying to understand what it means to be alive. A new classic in the “figuring shit out” genre.

This book shares the moving tale of a young girl dealing with her strict religious family's reaction to her sister's sin, which ended in her being sent away. Trying to come to terms with the situation, she begins writing her sister letters and ends up finding herself along the way. This book deals with heavy subject matters and I would not recommend it to children under 11.
