We Have Always Lived In the Castle


Many of us will never forget reading Shirley Jackson’s critically-acclaimed short story “The Lottery” in school. Like that famous work, Jackson’s final novel, We Have Always Lived in the Castle, also dwells on the subject of scapegoating. This gothic mystery, often called Jackson’s masterpiece, was published in 1962 and was included on Time Magazine’s “Ten Best Novels” list that year. (1962, paperback)
