This is a sociological ghost story of sorts but rather than the malevolent ghosts of people who have died, the ghostly subjects of this story are those of children and of maternal subjectivities which are ‘only’ fantasies, that – as Hilary Mantell suggests in the epigraph – may be understood nevertheless to be an active presence in the lives of the women whose narratives I will discuss.
