Reviews

  • Stepping into Hill House is like stepping into the mind of a madman; it isn't long before you weird yourself out

    Stephen King
  • 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
  • The world of Shirley Jackson is eerie and unforgettable ... She is a true master

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

    Jonathan Lethem
  • Her books penetrate keenly to the terrible truths which sometimes hide behind comfortable fictions, to the treachery beneath cheery neighborhood faces and the plain manners of country folk

    Donna Tartt
  • She is the finest master...of the cryptic, haunted tale

    The New York Times Book Review
  • A novel which at one stroke puts her unquestionably among the great masters of the genre . . . as spine-chilling . . . as anything Edgar Allan Poe dreamed up.
