Dr. Montague, an occult scholar, and his team--Theodora, his assistant; Eleanor, a fragile young woman with a close acquaintance with the paranormal; and Luke, the future heir of Hill House--conduct an unusual research project in a reputedly haunted house. Reprint. 10,000 first printing.
Annotation:
Aside from her short story, "The Lottery", "The Haunting of Hill House" is probably Shirley Jackson's most famous work. Dr. Montague is a scholar of the occult, looking for evidence of haunting. He has recruited three volunteers to spend a summer investigating the paranormal phenomena at Hill House. Only Eleanor, a lonely young women all too well acquainted with poltergeists, strikes a peculiar affinity with Hill House, one that may well prove dangerous...
Author Bio

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"At certain moments, quietly, in quick, subtle transitions of tone, Miss Jackson can summon up stark terror, make your blood chill and your scalp prickle....Shirley Jackson proves again that she is the finest master currently practicing in the genre of the criptic, haunted tale. To all the classic paraphernalia of the spook story, she adds a touch of Freud to make the whole world kin." - Edmund Fuller 10/18/59

Esquire
"Shirley Jackson is unparalleled as leader in the field of beautifully written, quiet...shudders." - Dorothy Parker
