Who's Afraid of Shirley Jackson?
I remember reading The Lottery in high school. I wasn't quite sure what to make of it then and have long thought to revisit the novella. Abebooks pays Shirley Jackson her due, with a wonderful collection of first editions. Library of America also has a collection of her novels and stories, with a forward by Joyce Carol Oates.
