"Delving deep into a labyrinth of dark neurosis, We Have Always Lived in the Castle is a deliciously unsettling novel about a perverse, isolated, and possibly murderous family and the struggle that ensues when outside forces disrupt their delicate balance of life." -- Provided by publisher.

COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Shirley Jackson's Second House of Genius submitted by andrewjmac on June 24, 2017, 9:56am The best novels leave you questioning the very nature of storytelling. Shirley Jackson doesn't leave you that way, she gets you there in the first ten pages. But once you think you've figured out what's going on (or at least how we got where we are), you are still questioning, questioning everything, right up until the end. Another incredible narrative voice from Jackson, author of perhaps the greatest ghost story (or not?) ever written, "The Haunting of Hill House."

***** submitted by shannonwait on August 3, 2018, 7:27am I loved the claustrophobic atmosphere and gothic style of Jackson's storytelling.
