Description

A darkly funny account of family life from the author of ‘The Haunting of Hill House’ and ‘The Lottery’

‘Sometimes, in my capacity as a mother, I find myself sitting open-mouthed and terrified before my own children’

As well as being a master of the macabre, Shirley Jackson was also a pitch-perfect chronicler of everyday family life. In Life Among the Savages, her caustically funny account of raising her children in a ramshackle house in Vermont, she deals with rats in the cellar, misbehaving imaginary friends, an oblivious husband and ever-encroaching domestic chaos, all described with wit, warmth and plenty of bite.
