Leggi questo articolo in italiano

The book collects some tales by Shirley Jackson, author I already know for the novel We have always lived in the castle and for a couple of stories.

The tales belong the genres of horror and weird: the typical structure begins with a normal setting where dark elements appears and disturb the normal atmosphere. The endings close perfectly the tales and leave a sense of unease to the reader.

It’s a very good collection that I will absolutely suggest to the ones who want to discover the imaginary of this author.
