Ghosts walk (A collection of book titles #4)

(This is inspired by the collection of poems “Updating Salvation: A Collection Of Song Titles” by Benjamin Grossman, except with book titles.)

20th century ghosts[i]come to
Manhattan in reverse[ii]
Through misspent youth[iii],
The crying tree[iv] has fallen[v]
From the name of the wind[vi],
And In the land without footprints[vii]
Things fall apart[viii].
