Notă biografică

Shirley Jackson, born in 1919, was the author of numerous books, including Hangsman, Life Among the Savages, and We Have Always Lived in the Castle. For the last twenty years of her life, until her death in 1965, she lived in North Bennington, Vermont.


Shirley Jackson's stories are among the most terrifying ever written
An amazing writer ... If you haven't read We Have Always Lived in the Castle or The Haunting of Hill House or any of her short stories you have missed out on something marvellous
Her stories are stunning, timeless - as relevant and terrifying now as when they were first published ... 'The Lottery' is so much an icon in the history of the American short story that one could argue it has moved from the canon of American twentieth-century fiction directly into the American psyche, our collective unconscious
One of the twentieth century's most luminous and strange American writers
