Shirley Jackson: A Rather Haunted Life

Ruth Franklin

Winner of the National Book Critic Circle Award for Biography 2016

A genius of literary suspense, known to millions as the author of the The Lottery, Shirley Jackson (1916-1965) plumbed the cultural anxiety of postwar America better than anyone. Based on a wealth of previously undiscovered correspondence and dozens of interviews, Shirley Jackson reveals the tumultuous life and inner darkness of the author, firmly placing Jackson within the American Gothic tradition.
