There’s a madwoman upstairs, and only Megan Weiler can see her.

In The Upstairs House, Megan is ravaged and sore from giving birth to her first child, mostly raising her newborn alone while her husband travels for work. Physically exhausted and mentally drained, she’s also wracked with guilt over her unfinished dissertation—a thesis on mid-century children’s literature.

Enter a new upstairs neighbor: the ghost of quixotic children’s book writer Margaret Wise Brown—author of the beloved classic Goodnight Moon—whose existence no one else will acknowledge. It seems Margaret has unfinished business with her former lover, the once-famous socialite and actress Michael Strange, and is determined to draw Megan into the fray. As Michael joins the haunting, Megan finds herself caught in the wake of a supernatural power struggle—and until she can find a way to quiet these spirits, she and her newborn daughter are in terrible danger.

Fine will be in conversation with Lynn Steger Strong, author of the bestselling novel Want, a book about motherhood, economic anxiety, rage, and the limits of language.
