about

One of the most terrifying stories of the twentieth century, Shirley Jackson''s "The Lottery" created a sensation when it was first published in The New Yorker in 1948.

"Power and haunting," and "nights of unrest" were typical reader responses. Today it is considered a classic work of short fiction, a story remarkable for its combination of subtle suspense and pitch-perfect descriptions of both the chilling and the mundane.

The Lottery and Other Stories, the only collection of stories to appear during Shirley Jackson''s lifetime, unites "The Lottery" with twenty-four equally unusual short stories. Together they demonstrate Jackson''s remarkable range-from the hilarious to the horrible, the unsettling to the ominous-and her power as a storyteller.

Shirley Jackson (1919-1965) wrote several books, including Hangsaman, Life Among the Savages, and We Have Always Lived in the Castle.
