Just an Ordinary Day

Usually despatches within 3-5 days.

Description

A remarkable collection of dark, funny and haunting short stories from the inimitable author of 'The Lottery'.

An anxious devil, an elderly writer of poison pen letters and a mid-century Jack the Ripper; a pursuit though a nightmarish city, a small boy's thrilling train ride with a female thief, and a town where the possibility of evil lurks behind perfect rose bushes. This is the world of Shirley Jackson, by turns frightening, funny, strange and unforgettably revealed in this brilliant collection of short stories.

'Jackson at her best: plumbing the extraordinary from the depths of mid-twentieth-century common. [ Just an Ordinary Day ] is a gift to a new generation' - San Francisco Chronicle

'For Jackson devotees, as well as first-time readers, this is a feast ... A virtuoso collection' - Publishers Weekly
