This month - and to ring in Halloween! - we are reading The Haunting of Hill House
by Shirley Jackson.
Alone in the world, Eleanor is delighted to take up Dr. Montague's invitation to spend a summer in the mysterious Hill House. Joining them are Theodora, an artistic sensitive, and Luke, the heir to the property. But what begins as a light-hearted experiment is swiftly proven to be a trip into the darkest nightmares of the group, and an experience that one of their number may not survive.
'Shirley Jackson is one of those highly idiosyncratic, inimitable writers, whose work exerts an enduring spell.' - Joyce Carol Oates
'As nearly perfect a haunted-house tale as I have ever read.' - Stephen King
