The Lottery | Shirley Jackson
post image

“Am I walking toward something I should be running away from?“
Shirley Jackson (1916-1965)
Her fiction marries the ordinary with the supernatural and often speaks to inhumanities people endure. Her most famous story on the subject, “The Lottery“, was written after rural Vermont residents painted a swastika on her house (her husband was Jewish).

Task 24 : An assigned book you hated (or
never finished)
Read and hated #TheLottery in school. Attempted different approach by using the #GraphicNovel this go 'round. Wonderfully illustrated but still loathed the book. Most likely because of my dislike for people who don't adjust to change but rather desire to continue what has always been done before.

Bookladylinda I didn‘t know there is also a graphic novel, I haven‘t read the book yet. 5y

Happy birthday to Shirley Jackson, who I first discovered in the #PersephoneBooks Book of Short Stories!
