Pub. Date:
Just an Ordinary Day began with the discovery of a cobweb-covered carton of files in a Vermont barn. In that box were lost, unpublished stories by the late Shirley Jackson, whose short story "The Lottery" has become a classic and whose novel The Haunting of Hill House has joined the works of Edgar Allan Poe as a perfect blend of art and terror. Edited by two of Shirley Jackson's children, these lost tales, along with other stories, form the first major collection of Jackson's work in thirty years.The fifty-four stories in this edition represent the great diversity of her work, from humor to shocking explorations of the human psyche.
