Summary

A powerful collection of short stories by Shirley Jackson.
"The Lottery," one of the most terrifying stories of the twentieth century, created a sensation when it was first published in the New Yorker. "Powerful and haunting," and "nights of unrest" were typical reader responses. This collection, the only one to appear during Jackson's lifetime, unites "The Lottery" with 24 equally unusual stories. Together they demonstrate her remarkable range - from the hilarious to the truly horrible - and power as a storyteller.

Includes s very shouty narrator

Shirley Jackson's stories are so disturbing - I only wish the shouty female narrator didn't disturb their telling quite so often.

Titles please!

The titles aren't read so they all blend into each other and there's no way to figure out what the titles are.

Interesting short stories

A selection of dark, but intriguing, short stories by Shirley Jackson. She is best known for writing "The Haunting of Hill House". There is nothing supernatural in these stories, but there is a theme of grotesque behavior between people. The narration is excellent, all of the narrators are first rate.
