The Inhabited World by David Long

At the center of The Inhabited World is Evan Molloy, and he's been dead for 10 years. Since he committed suicide a decade ago, he's been stuck in the afterlife in the house where he died. He remembers his own life, although he doesn't remember his death, and recounts his marriage, stepdaughter, affair, and the depression that drove him to take his own life. He's watched a series of tenants live in the house, and the latest, Maureen, has drawn his attention. She too is reeling from an affair gone wrong, and he sees similarities between her life and his. David Long's novel has received mixed reviews with the Boston Globe saying, "What Long masterfully achieves is the precise interior focus of a man whose life is circling the drain, and he does this without either high drama or sentimentality."
