              The Haunting of Hill House (EPUB ebook)

              By Jackson, Shirley

              Luke Sanderson, inheritor of the mysterious Hill House, invites a supernatural investigator and several guests interested in the paranormal to his eighty-year-old mansion in the hopes that they can experience and record supernatural events. As time passes, the group experiences i...ncreasingly terrifying and unexplainable disturbances, and one guest-Eleanor Vance-seems to be a particular target of the strange occurrences. The Haunting of Hill House is one of the most famous ghost stories in literary history, and was a finalist for the National Book Award of 1959. Lauded by horror legends like Stephen King and named "the greatest haunted-house story ever written" by the Wall Street Journal, it has been adapted into films several times and served as a foundation for many modern ghost stories.HarperPerennial Classics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.

              We Have Always Lived in the Castle (EPUB ebook)

              By Jackson, Shirley

              Mary Katherine "Merricat" Blackwood and her elder sister Constance live alone in their ancestral home with their crippled uncle after the tragic murder of both of their parents, their aunt, and their younger brother. Having been accused and later acquitted of the murders, Constan...ce confines herself to the grounds of their home, while Merricat contends with their hostile neighbors and with the ever-increasing sense of impending danger she feels is heading their way. In We Have Always Lived in the Castle, author Shirley Jackson deftly handles delicate subjects like mental illness, agoraphobia, and social isolation. We Have Always Lived in the Castle was Jackson's final novel, and has been held in high critical esteem since its publication in 1962.HarperPerennial Classics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.

              Hangsaman (EPUB ebook)

              By Jackson, Shirley

              Natalie Waite may have had a fairly normal upbringing, but her deteriorating relationship with her parents and general unhappiness leave her with an eagerness to escape her childhood when it comes time for her to leave for college at the age of seventeen. However, her new indepen...dent life and identity soon begin to seem empty as well, and the happiness and freedom she desired never seem to arrive, leaving Natalie to slowly unravel. Hangsaman is one of author Shirley Jackson's lesser known, but critically acclaimed works. Presenting itself as a simple coming-of-age tale, Jackson deftly manipulates her heroine's delicate instability to craft a uniquely suspenseful story about identity and loneliness.HarperPerennial Classics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.
