Horror Editor's Recommended Book
The New York Times Book Review
"Shirley Jackson is unparalleled as a leader in the field of beautifully written, quiet, cumulative shudders."
-Dorthy Parker, Esqire
"The Haunting of Hill House is the best haunted house story of all time."
"I am like a small creature swallowed whole by a monster... and the monster feels my tiny little
movements inside." So reflects nervous Eleanor, the 32-year-old heroine of this most critically
acclaimed haunted-house novel ever written. Eleanor is an oddball. She resents having lost so many
years to nursing her dying mother. She jumps at the opportunity to escape the officious presence of
her sister and brother-in-law. She escapes . . . to Hill House, which "not sane, stood by itself against
its hills, holding darkness within . . . whatever walked there, walked alone."
