Lottery and Other Stories: 75th Anniversary Edition

Sale price$17.00


A trove of iconic horror stories from the legendary Shirley Jackson, "the master of the haunted tale" (The New York Times Book Review).

One of the darkest, most nightmarish stories of the twentieth century, Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery" created a sensation when it was first published in 1948. Now celebrating its seventy-fifth anniversary, this lucid tale of a sleepy town's annual lottery--and the monstrous desires it awakens--endures as an essential classic of American fiction.
The Lottery and Other Stories unites "The Lottery" with twenty-four wonderfully strange and equally terrifying short stories from the legendary Shirley Jackson. Together they demonstrate Jackson's remarkable range--from the hilarious to the horrible, the unsettling to the ominous--and showcase a true master at the height of her haunting powers.
