I think I’d better start planning my October reading soon! Chances are a lot of y’all read Shirley Jackson’s short story “The Lottery” in high school. I know I did. It was disturbing. I’ve also read The Haunting of Hill House and loved it. It was a psychological narrative. I just know more spine-tingling creepiness awaits in We Have Always Lived in the Castle. If you enjoyed DuMaurier’s Rebecca, you’d probably like the Gothic tales written by Shirley Jackson.
Synopsis from BN.com:
Taking readers deep into a labyrinth of dark neurosis, We Have Always Lived in the Castle is a deliciously unsettling novel about a perverse, isolated, and possibly murderous family and the struggle that ensues when a cousin arrives at their estate.
