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 boys 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.

Jackson at her best: plumbing the extraordinary from the depths of mid-twentieth-century common. [Just an Ordinary Day] is a gift to a new generation - San Francisco ChronicleFor Jackson devotees, as well as first-time readers, this is a feast ... A virtuoso collection - Publishers Weekly

Описание: From the peerless author of The Lottery and We Have Always Lived in the Castle, this is a treasure trove of deliciously dark and funny stories, essays, lectures, letters and drawings. Let Me Tell You brings together the brilliantly eerie short stories Jackson is best known for with frank and inspiring lectures on writing; comic essays she wrote about her large, rowdy family; and revelatory personal letters and drawings. Jackson's landscape here is most frequently domestic - dinner parties, children's games and neighbourly gossip - but one that is continually threatened and subverted in her unsettling, inimitable prose.

This collection is the first opportunity to see Shirley Jackson's radically different modes of writing side by side, revealing her to be a magnificent storyteller, a sharp, sly humorist and a powerful feminist. 'The stories range from sketches and anecdotes to complete and genuinely unsettling tales, somewhat alarming and very creepy ... The whole of the book offers insights into the vagaries of her mind, which was ruminant and generous ...

For those of us whose imaginations, and creative ambitions, were ignited by 'The Lottery', Jackson remains one of the great practitioners of the literature of the darker impulses' - Paul Theroux, New York Times'Shirley Jackson made a reputation with a short story in 1948. Like a lot of people I read 'The Lottery' when I was young, in an anthology of short stories from the New Yorker, and never forgot it. Let Me Tell You is a rich, enjoyable compendium of her unpublished short fiction and occasional writings, kicking off with a story of a dozen pages, 'Paranoia', which I won't forget, either' - Tom Stoppard, TLS Books of the Year

Описание: Part of a new six-volume series of the best in classic horror, selected by award-winning director of The Shape of Water Guillermo del Toro

Filmmaker and longtime horror literature fan Guillermo del Toro serves as the curator for the Penguin Horror series, a new collection of classic tales and poems by masters of the genre. Included here are some of del Toro's favorites, from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and Ray Russell's short story "Sardonicus," considered by Stephen King to be "perhaps the finest example of the modern Gothic ever written," to Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House and stories by Ray Bradbury, Joyce Carol Oates, Ted Klein, and Robert E. Howard. Featuring original cover art by Penguin Art Director Paul Buckley, these stunningly creepy deluxe hardcovers will be perfect additions to the shelves of horror, sci-fi, fantasy, and paranormal aficionados everywhere.

The Haunting of Hill House

The classic supernatural thriller by an author who helped define the genre. First published in 1959, Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House has been hailed as a perfect work of unnerving terror. It is the story of four seekers who arrive at a notoriously unfriendly pile called Hill House: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of a "haunting;' Theodora, his lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a friendless, fragile young woman well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable phenomena. But Hill House is gathering its powers--and soon it will choose one of them to make its own.

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""
