Seventeen stories worth reading...
Reviewed in the United States on February 2, 2019
Until I read this book, the only short story by Shirley Jackson I had read was The Lottery. Most of us read that one in high school, right? If you liked that story, you should definitely buy this book. It contains 17 gems, all with interesting characters and surprising twists. They linger in your memory and pop up when you don’t expect them to pop up. If you like to read or write short fiction, this little book is a good one to peruse.
