A darkly funny novel about the odd relationships formed among the living and the dead. A creepy, humorous contemporary, ghost story

This story is disturbing and feels like a trip down a very dark rabbit hole. At the bottom of the hole is child neglect and child sexual abuse. The resolution is poor and the two main characters find a strange truth about their lives which does not suggest to the reader that they will ever recover. I would NOT recommend this book.
