  • Shirley Jackson's stories are among the most terrifying ever written

    Donna Tartt
  • An amazing writer ... If you haven't read We Have Always Lived in the Castle or The Haunting of Hill House or any of her short stories you have missed out on something marvellous

    Neil Gaiman
  • Her stories are stunning, timeless - as relevant and terrifying now as when they were first published ... 'The Lottery' is so much an icon in the history of the American short story that one could argue it has moved from the canon of American twentieth-century fiction directly into the American psyche, our collective unconscious

    A. M. Homes
  • One of the twentieth century's most luminous and strange American writers

    Jonathan Lethem
