Описание: NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR From the renowned author of The Lottery and The Haunting of Hill House, a spectacular new volume of previously unpublished and uncollected stories, essays, and other writings.
Shirley Jackson is one of the most important American writers of the last hundred years. Since her death in 1965, her place in the landscape of twentieth-century fiction has grown only more exalted.
As we approach the centenary of her birth comes this astonishing compilation of fifty-six pieces more than forty of which have never been published before. Two of Jackson s children co-edited this volume, culling through the vast archives of their mother s papers at the Library of Congress, selecting only the very best for inclusion.
Let Me Tell You brings together the deliciously eerie short stories Jackson is best known for, along with frank, inspiring lectures on writing; comic essays about her large, boisterous family; and whimsical drawings. Jackson s landscape here is most frequently domestic: dinner parties and bridge, household budgets and homeward-bound commutes, children s games and neighborly gossip. But this familiar setting is also her most subversive: She wields humor, terror, and the uncanny to explore the real challenges of marriage, parenting, and community the pressure of social norms, the veins of distrust in love, the constant lack of time and space.
For the first time, this collection showcasesShirley Jackson s radically different modes of writing side by side. Together they show her to be a magnificent storyteller, a sharp, sly humorist, and a powerful feminist.
This volume includes a Foreword by the celebrated literary critic and Jackson biographer Ruth Franklin.
Praise for Let Me Tell You
Stunning. O: The Oprah Magazine

Let us now at last celebrate dangerous women writers: how cheering to see justice done with this collection of] Shirley Jackson s heretofore unpublished works uniquely unsettling stories and ruthlessly barbed essays on domestic life. Vanity Fair
Feels like an uncanny dollhouse: Everything perfectly rendered, but something deliciously not quite right. NPR
There are . . . times in reading Jackson s] accounts of desperate women in their thirties slowly going crazy that she seems an American Jean Rhys, other times when she rivals even Flannery O Connor in her cool depictions of inhumanity and insidious cruelty, and still others when she matches Philip K. Dick at his most hallucinatory. At her best, though, she s just incomparable. The Washington Post
Offers insights into the vagaries of Jackson s] mind, which was ruminant and generous, accommodating such diverse figures as Dr. Seuss and Samuel Richardson. The New York Times Book Review
The best pieces clutch your throat, gently at first, and then with growing strength. . . . The whole collection has a timelessness. The Boston Globe
Jackson s] writing, both fiction and nonfiction, has such enduring power she brings out the darkness in life, the poltergeists shut into everyone s basement, and offers them up, bringing wit and even joy to the examination. USA Today

The closest we can get to sitting down and having a conversation with . . . one of the most original voices of her generation. The Huffington Post

Описание: "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.
Shirley Jackson (1919-65) wrote several books, including "Hangsaman," "Life Among the Savages," and "We Have Always Lived in the Castle." For the last twenty years of her life, she lived in North Bennington, Vermont.
One of the most terrifying stories of the twentieth century, "The Lottery" created a sensation when it was first published in "The" "New Yorker." "Powerful and haunting" and "nights of unrest" were typical reader responses. Widely anthologized, "The Lottery" is today considered a classic work of short fiction.
This collection, the only one to appear during Shirley Jackson's lifetime, combines "The Lottery" with twenty-four equally unusual or unsettling tales. Taken together, these writings demonstrate Jackson's remarkable and commanding range--from the commonplace to the chilling, from the hilarious to the truly horrible--as a modern storyteller.
This FSG Classics edition also features a new introduction to Jackson's work by A. M. Homes.
"Jackson is unparalleled as a leader in the field of beautifully written, quiet, cumulative shudders."--Dorothy Parker, "Esquire"
" These] stories remind one of the elemental terrors of childhood."--James Hilton," New York Herald Tribune "
"In her art, as in her life, Shirley Jackson was an absolute original. She listened to her own voice, kept her own counsel, isolated herself from all intellectual and literary currents . . . She was unique."--"Newsweek"
