Author Info
Shirley Jackson
Shirley Jackson was educated at the University of Rochester, and was married to Stanley Edgar Hyman, also a writer. They had several children. In addition to her neo-Gothic tales (e.g., her famous story, "The Lottery"), Jackson also wrote wacky accounts of family life.
Praise
"I have tried hard to put Shirley Jackson's grim fairy tale out of my mind, I wouldn't read it again for anything: It is the rare and embarrassing masterpiece that keeps itself to itself. When its full cruelty and horror break upon you, you will want to buy a crate of clove-gillyflower and Old Spice from the American Institute of Arts and Letters and retire early."
From the Publisher
Editors Note The Lottery, one of the most terrifying stories written in this century, created a sensation when it was first published in The New Yorker. "Power and haunting," and "nights of unrest" were typical reader responses. This collection, the only one to appear during Shirley Jackson's lifetime, unites "The Lottery:" with twenty-four equally unusual stories. Together they demonstrate Jack son's remarkable range--from the hilarious to the truly horrible--and power as a storyteller.
