The Haunting of Hill House - Shirley Jackson

Someday I'll have my act together enough to actually read classic horror during the month of October. Until then, let me just rave a bit about Shirley Jackson. Her writing is so clear, and her descriptions are so vivid that they really give you the creeps while you're reading. At the same time, the way the story develops, I feel unsure of some of it - is it real? Is it imagined? It's hard to say. It's a shame the author died so young, she was obviously enormously talented. I will really have to read her other books sooner rather than later. Recommended.
