Praise
"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."
"Shirley Jackson is unparalleled as leader in the field of beautifully written, quiet...shudders."
