In a hilariously charming domestic memoir, America s celebrated master of terror turns to a different kind of fright: raising children
In her celebrated fiction, Shirley Jackson explored the darkness lurking beneath the surface of small-town America. But in Life Among the Savages, she takes on the lighter side of small-town life. In this witty and warm memoir of her family s life in rural Vermont, she delightfully exposes a domestic side in cheerful contrast to her quietly terrifying fiction. With a novelist s gift for character, an unfailing maternal instinct, and her signature humor, Jackson turns everyday family experiences into brilliant adventures.
Shirley Jackson (1919 1965), a celebrated writer of horror, wrote many stories as well as six novels and two works of nonfiction."
