    The Lottery and Other Stories doc ☆ Paperback read The Lottery and Other Stories“Grace Paley once described the male female writer phenomenon to me by saying’Women have always done men the favor of reading their work but the men have not returned the favor’” I do believe that Miss Jackson was making a very pointed comment about male readers I don’t consciously think about reading a male or female writer but I know that I do read male writers I went back and looked at the last thirty books I’ve read22 male writers 73%8 female writers 27%I

    The Lottery and Other Stories doc ☆ Paperback read The Lottery and Other StoriesPeople are never uite what they seem are they? There are loads of oddities secrets turmoil prejudices obsessions hysteria and perhaps even evil lurking just below the surface I don’t think anyone understood this better than Shirley Jackson I’d even go so far as to say Shirley Jackson didn’t have much faith in humanity She

    The Lottery and Other Stories doc ☆ Paperback read The Lottery and Other StoriesAfter reading all these seemingly disconnected tales of hush hush Terror evidently some pattern arises This chain of stories is where I found the masterpiece existing at the very core of the novelNever before has subtlety been used so effectively In a masterpiece of the macabre a few corpses ghosts demons should ma

    The Lottery and Other Stories doc ☆ Paperback read The Lottery and Other StoriesThe one thing that really stands out about this collection of Shirley Jackson stories is this the subtletyIt's not over the top horror in any shape or fashion Rather it's regular folk doing regular things and as we peel back layers and layers to their surroundings or their individual psyches everything twists subtly The normal uickly becomes a twilight zone nightmare even if it's only a tiny little thing that's changedA dog caught killing chickens shiver My goodness that one killed me DeadSome like the Witch was totally awesome and people of my generation would have just found it great fu

    The Lottery and Other Stories doc ☆ Paperback read The Lottery and Other StoriesToday December 14 is Shirley Jackson's birthday and ever since Shirley came into my life this year and KNOCKED ME OUT with her fiction I have invented a little fantasy about what her average morning might have looked like when she was alive It's a complete fiction of course but it always manages to cheer me up every time I think of it or find myself disliking men overly muchSo it goes It's morning at the JacksonHyman household circa 195 and Shirley Jackson's standing in her kitc

    The Lottery and Other Stories doc ☆ Paperback read The Lottery and Other StoriesMy 1949 Avon paperback it originally sold for 35 cents seems to be pushing Shirley Jackson as HP Lovecraft with ovaries The cover proclaims 'A study in nightmares by the most haunting writer of this generation' It's even subtitled 'Adventures of the Demon Lover' Anyone who's ever read that story knows the lover in that tale is scoundrel than demon Whatever it takes to sell books I supposeJackson's characters do than throw stones at o

    The Lottery and Other Stories doc ☆ Paperback read The Lottery and Other StoriesVery rarely does one find a short story collection where all stories are above average Kudos to Ms Jackson for producing a collection where all are excellent and some really outstanding I wonder whether it is possible to fall in love with a lady who passed away when one was scarcely two years old? If so I'm in love with ShirleyThe title story needs no introduction in fact this is the one which first led me to Shirley Jackson and The Haunting of Hill House which so far I've not been able to read It must be one of the most discusse

    The Lottery and Other Stories doc ☆ Paperback read The Lottery and Other StoriesRecently I've read a number of short stories with the intention of cutting down my huge reading pile and I've been largely disappointed Particularly by common favourites like Edgar Allan Poe and his many famous horror tales I was surprised to find them rather lacking The Lottery however is one of the best short stories I've read It's very rare that I would give five stars to a short story because I reserve the top rating for meaty well rounded often complex ando
