Praise for Just an Ordinary Day
“Jackson at her best: plumbing the extraordinary from the depths of mid-twentieth-century common. [Just an Ordinary Day] is a gift to a new generation.”San Francisco Chronicle
Praise for Shirley Jackson
“[Jackson’s] work exerts an enduring spell.”—Joyce Carol Oates
“Shirley Jackson’s stories are among the most terrifying ever written.”—Donna Tartt
“An amazing writer . . . If you haven’t read [Jackson] you have missed out on something marvelous.”—Neil Gaiman
“Shirley Jackson is unparalleled as a leader in the field of beautifully written, quiet, cumulative shudders.”—Dorothy Parker
“An author who not only writes beautifully but who knows what there is, in this world, to be scared of.”—Francine Prose
“The world of Shirley Jackson is eerie and unforgettable.”—A. M. Homes
“Jackson enjoyed notoriety and commercial success within her lifetime, and yet it still hardly seems like enough for a writer so singular. When I meet readers and other writers of my generation, I find that mentioning her is like uttering a holy name.”—Victor LaValle
