Product Description:

[We Have Always Lived in the Castle (Deluxe)]We Have Always Lived in the Castle (Deluxe) BY Jackson, Shirley(Author)Paperback

Review:

Her greatest book ... at once whimsical and harrowing, a miniaturist's charmingly detailed fantasy sketched inside a mausoleum ... Through depths and depths and bloodwarm depths we fall, until the surface is only an eerie gleam high above, nearly forgotten; and the deeper we sink, the deeper we want to go (Donna Tartt)

An amazing writer (Neil Gaiman)

The world of Shirley Jackson is eerie and unforgettable ... She is a true master (A. M. Homes)

A masterpiece of Gothic suspense (Joyce Carol Oates)

For me, it is that unique and dreamlike book ... that stands as her masterpiece (Jonathan Lethem)

We Have Always Lived in the Castle is Jackson's masterpiece ... Stunning (Elaine Showalter)

Manages the ironic miracle of convincing the reader that a house inhabited by a lunatic, a poisoner, and a pyromaniac is a world more rich in sympathy, love and subtlety than the world outside ( Time)

A witch's brew of eerie power and startling novelty ( The New York Times)

A marvellous elucidation of life ... a story full of craft and full of mystery ( The New York Times Book Review)
