    ITEM#: 3284285

    Shirley Jackson, born in 1919, was the author of numerous books, including Hangsman, Life Among the Savages, and We Have Always Lived in the Castle. For the last twenty years of her life, until her death in 1965, she lived in North Bennington, Vermont.
    The Lottery, one of the most terrifying stories written in this century, created a sensation when it was first published in The New Yorker. "Power and haunting," and "nights of unrest" were typical reader responses. This collection, the only one to appear during Shirley Jackson's lifetime, unites "The Lottery:" with twenty-four equally unusual stories. Together they demonstrate Jack son's remarkable range--from the hilarious to the truly horrible--and power as a storyteller.
