A middle-aged academic finds himself in crisis after being mistaken for a ghost by his neighbors  

Paul Shreeve is an English professor who gets mistaken for a ghost by his neighbors. Though a man of strict rationality and analysis, he cannot shake his ghostly identity, nor will his neighbors allow him to forget. The ghost moves into his thoughts, his work, and his family and begins to chew at his very existence. His head, which drove his entire life, is confounded by something he can't quite touch. His ghosted self drives him to the fringes of rationality and beyond as he looks for something, anything, to help drive it away.
