Summary "You cannot have a funeral for your mother without also having a funeral for yourself." This book poses the ever-lingering question: What happens when someone dies before they're able to redeem themselves? From the bestselling & award-winning poetess, Amanda Lovelace, comes the finale of her illustrated duology, "things that h(a)unt."

In To Drink Coffee With A Ghost, Lovelace unravels the memory of the complicated relationship she had with her now-deceased mother.
