LitHub features Hungry Ghost Theater in October books to read

Hungry Ghost Theater is featured on LitHub's October Books to Read. Says Jane Ciabattari:

Sarah Stone’s Hungry Ghost Theater is an astonishing mosaic of fiction, theater, lyrical text and performance, tracing one family through many generations and permutations. It’s a rare look at the inner workings of a theater company devoted to political material, involving siblings Robert and Julia, as well as an exploration of the roots of empathy, undertaken by their sister Eva, a neuroscientist. Reading it leaves the aftertaste of a powerful performance: “Though we’d worked all summer for one ephemeral moment, I was content.”
