Summary
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
Summary
Forging a suicide pact in accordance with a macabre tradition, three sisters reflect on their shared love and the tragedies that have overshadowed their ancestors and personal lives
