Summary

Summary

Who can forget the first time they heard the story? Considered one of the masterpieces of American literature, “The Lottery” created a sensation when it was first published in the New Yorker. Since then it has become one of the most anthologized stories in American literature.

Powerful and haunting, subtle and horrifying, the tale demonstrates Shirley Jackson’s mastery of storytelling. This one-of-a-kind audio collection, from the only anthology published during the author’s lifetime, unites “The Lottery” with seven other equally unique stories. Jackson reveals the hidden evils of the human mind and society in these compelling stories.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Carol Jordan Stewart reads them with clarity, if not with depth. Her unadorned style complements the author’s literary character.” AudioFile
“Overall [Stewart’s] cheerful reading strikes a necessary contrast to the underlying eerieness and terror of the material. A good addition to audio collections.” Library Journal
