Publisher Description

Four seekers have arrived at the rambling old pile known as Hill House- Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of psychic phenomena; Theodora, his lovely and lighthearted assistant; Luke, the adventurous future inheritor of the estate; and Eleanor, a friendless, fragile young woman with a dark past. As they begin to cope with chilling, even horrifying occurrences beyond their control or understanding, they cannot possibly know what lies ahead. For Hill House is gathering its powers - and soon it will choose one of them to make its own.

Author Biography

Shirley Jackson was born in San Francisco in 1916. She first received wide critical acclaim for her short story 'The Lottery', which was published in 1949. Her novels - which include The Sundial, The Bird's Nest, Hangsaman, The Road through the Wall, We Have Always Lived in the Castle and The Haunting of Hill House - are characterised by her use of realistic settings for tales that often involve elements of horror and the occult. Raising Demons and Life Among the Savages are her two works of nonfiction. Come Along With Me is a collection of stories, lectures, and part of the novel she was working on when she died in 1965.

Review

A novel which at one stroke puts her unquestionably among the great masters of the genre . . . as spine-chilling as anything Edgar Allan Poe dreamed up Daily Telegraph The quintessential haunted-house story ... A masterpiece of edgy tension and creeping terror Independent The world of Shirley Jackson is eerie and unforgettable ... She is a true master -- A. M. Homes Not only the best haunted-house story ever written, but also a quiet subversion of the ingenue trope in horror fiction -- Joanne Harris An amazing writer -- Neil Gaiman No one can touch her -- Donna Tartt As nearly perfect a haunted-house tale as I have ever read ... Stepping into Hill House is like stepping into the mind of a madman; it isn't long before you weird yourself out -- Stephen King
