The Haunt­ing Of Hill House

Shirley Jack­son

Grazia (UK) - - Play List -

Shirley Jack­son’s near per­fect haunted house novel is set in 1950s Amer­ica. What makes it stand out is the weird­ness of the house’s in­hab­i­tants and the strong un­der­cur­rent of fe­male sex­u­al­ity. It wrong-foots the reader with wry hu­mour and un­ex­pected twists for a per­fect pre-hal­loween read.
