Summary
  • "In the vein of such classic family sagas as Fall on Your Knees, A Reunion of Ghosts is the confessional of three sisters who have decided to kill themselves on the very last day of the 20th century; in it they tell the story of a family haunted by suicide ever since the sisters' great-grandfather, a Nobel Prize-winning chemist, developed the first poison gas used in warfare and also the lethal agent used in the Third Reich's gas chambers--inspired in part by the troubled life of Fritz Haber, Nobel Prize winner and inventor of mustard gas"--
  • Three sisters have decided to kill themselves on the very last day of the 20th century. The Alter sisters-- Lady, Vee, and Delph-- are witty, complex women who share their family's apartment on Manhattan's Upper West Side. But bad luck is in their genes, passed down through the generations. As the world counts down to the dawn of a new millennium, they weave a mesmerizing account of their lives that stretches back decades to their great-grandfather, a brilliant scientist whose professional triumph became the sinister legacy that defines them
