We Have Always Lived in the Castle - Shirley Jackson
Why isn't Shirley Jackson talked about more often? It must be because she died relatively young and many years ago; it certainly isn't because she isn't a great writer. I am not sure anyone does creepy as well as she does. I remember reading "The Lottery" in school and loving it, and I have no idea why I didn't go on to read more of her writing, but at least I can make up for lost time now. I found this book at a local high school's summer book sale a couple years ago, and never managed to read it until now, and as often happens with my TBR books I'm sorry I waited so long. I think this book will be buzzing around my mind for the next several days. Highly recommended.
