Brilliant and chilling, The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson is a classic psychological ghost story. Did it happen? Or did it happen only in the mind of its fragile protagonist Eleanor Vance? In her second to last novel, Shirley Jackson corrals her mighty talent to create that rare thing: a horror novel that is also literature. No wonder Stephen King considers it one of the great supernatural novels in the last hundred years.
