The Sundial

By Shirley Jackson

 

From the sky and from the ground and from the sea there is danger; tell them in the house…

 

Mrs Halloran has inherited the great Halloran house on the death of her son, much to the disgust of her daughter-in-law, the delight of her wicked granddaughter and the confusion of the rest of the household.  But when the original owner – long dead – arrives to announce the world is ending and only the house and its occupants will be saved, they find themselves in a nightmare of a strange marble statues, mysterious guest and the beautiful, unsettling Halloran sundial which seems to be the centre of it all.

Shirley Jackson blends sinister family politics and apocalyptic terror in a masterpiece of the macabre.

 

A novel of gothic horror and shuddering suspense.
