A fly fisherman glimpses his own death in the river that gives him solace

Facing the possibility of death following a cancer diagnosis, the American writer Jeff Metcalf finds solace in fly fishing the waters near his northern Utah home. Centred around Metcalf’s recollection of a particular trip to the river when he felt profoundly responsible for the life – and death – of a fish at the end of his line, Ghost, Come Closer is a lyrical meditation on uncertainty, patience and the places where we find meaning and comfort.
