Product Description

For the first time in one volume a collection of Shirley Jackson’s scariest stories with a foreword by PEN/Hemingway Award winner Ottessa Moshfegh After the publication of her short story “The Lottery” in the New Yorker in 1948 received an unprecedented amount of attention Shirley Jackson was quickly established as a master horror storyteller. This collection of classic and newly reprinted stories provides readers with more of her unsettling dark tales including the “The Possibility of Evil” and “The Summer People.” In these deliciously dark stories the daily commute turns into a nightmarish game of hide and seek the loving wife hides homicidal thoughts and the concerned citizen might just be an infamous serial killer. In the haunting world of Shirley Jackson nothing is as it seems and nowhere is safe from the city streets to the crumbling country pile and from the small-town apartment to the dark dark woods. There’s something sinister in suburbia.For more than seventy years Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.
