The Lottery and Other Stories

By Shirley Jackson

Published Oct 2016

An excellent host finds himself turned out of his home by his own guests; a woman spends her wedding day frantically searching for her husband-to-be; and in Shirley Jackson’s best-known story, a small farming village comes together for a terrible lottery.

The creeping unease of lives squandered and the unspoken terrors of everyday, suburban life are captured with brilliant clarity and sly humour in these tales by a master of the short story form.

One of the most famous short stories of the twentieth century, and surely one of the most wicked of any.

Donna Tartt

These stories are stunning, timeless – as relevant and terrifying now as when they were first published.
