We Have Always Lived in the Castle


Shirley Jackson’s final novel, We Have Always Lived in the Castle, dwells on the subject of scapegoating. This gothic mystery, often called Jackson’s masterpiece, was first published in 1962 and was included on Time Magazine’s “Ten Best Novels” list that year. Much like her famous short story, The Lottery, this novel is unforgettable. This Penguin Classics deluxe edition includes an afterword by Jonathan Lethem (paperback, 2006)
