Haunted Housing

The disquieting process of shopping for a foreclosed house in Los Angeles is narrated today in the Paris Review by writer Colin Dickey, who navigates an eerie world of toxic assets, zombie foreclosures, and ghost loans, all the while trying to put his finger on what exactly is so creepy. "We live among the undead. The things that used to have meaning and purpose—not just houses but banks and governments—have been emptied of what they once meant, and yet they remain, haunting us." [PR]
