Shirley Jackson

19 Aug

Did you read “The Lottery” in 9th grade? The stones? Remember? You were like O_O and couldn’t get to sleep that night?

May I recommend her last novel, published only three years before Jackson’s 1965 death, We Have Always Lived in the Castle? Spoooooky. Unreliable narrators, creepy towns, agoraphobia, everyday evil, outsider/insiderness! What’s not to like?
