Ghost Mom is a short novel told through a cohesive collection of flash fiction, it is a story about a mom who isn't exactly alive and a young adult who isn't exactly living, a story about grieving while being static, about living without being alive, about existing in all the different meanings of that word.


Advanced Praise for Ghost Mom


"Sometimes we're haunted by the living. Sometimes by the lost. In this beautiful chapbook from the wondrous T Guzman, we are introduced to a character who is being haunted by the ghost of their mother in ways both expected and unexpected. Every story of this pair is poignant. Insightful. Stunning. And also somehow familiar, as if we are looking through a window and seeing ourselves looking back. T Guzman has been a secret favorite of mine from one of the first stories I read. I'm excited that he won't be a secret much longer." - Cathy Ulrich, author of Small Burning Things


"Ghost Mom is an otherworldly hand on your forearm guiding you through grief, dating, family relationships, and loneliness. Guzman’s novella-in-flash commiserates with readers about the difficulty of navigating through a world with people who are more or less easy to touch. I’ll be returning to this book, and to Guzman’s gentle, insightful voice, again and again." - Jennifer A. Howard, editor-in-chief of Passages North
