Описание: In just two decades--she died in 1965, at the age of forty-eight--Shirley Jackson created an enduring body of weird and magical fiction, one in which a grinning death's head lies just behind the smiling mask of so-called everyday life. Now, in this Library of America volume, Joyce Carol Oates gathers the best of Shirley Jackson's novels and stories for the first time. Here is The Lottery (1949), the classic collection whose world-famous title story is an allegory of violence, ritual, and the madness of crowds. Here too are two bewitching novels: The Haunting of Hill House (1959), the tale of an exquisitely empathetic young woman chosen by a haunted house to be its new tenant, and We Have Always Lived in the Castle (1962), the unrepentant confessions of Miss Merricat Blackwood, a cunning adolescent who has gone to quite unusual extremes to preserve her ideal of family happiness. Rounding out the volume are twenty-one further stories and sketches that go beyond the Gothic to present Jackson in other modes: groundbreaking domestic humorist, keen critic of racial prejudice, and scathing social satirist.

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NPR - From the renowned author of "The Lottery" and The Haunting of Hill House, a spectacular new volume of previously unpublished and uncollected stories, essays, and other writings.Features "Family Treasures," nominated for the Edgar Award for Best Short Story Shirley Jackson is one of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 showcases Shirley 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 PostFrom the Hardcover edition.

Описание: A remarkable collection of dark, funny and haunting short stories from the inimitable author of 'The Lottery'. An anxious devil, an elderly writer of poison pen letters and a mid-century Jack the Ripper; a pursuit though a nightmarish city, a small boy's thrilling train ride with a female thief, and a town where the possibility of evil lurks behind perfect rose bushes. This is the world of Shirley Jackson, by turns frightening, funny, strange and unforgettably revealed in this brilliant collection of short stories.
