A tie-in edition to accompany the new Netflix re-imagining of Jackson's scariest novel.
Four seekers have arrived at the rambling old pile known as Hill House: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of psychic phenomena; Theodora, his lovely and lighthearted assistant; Luke, the adventurous future inheritor of the estate; and Eleanor, a friendless, fragile young woman with a dark past. As they begin to cope with chilling, even horrifying occurrences beyond their control or understanding, they cannot possibly know what lies ahead. For Hill House is gathering its powers - and soon it will choose one of them to make its own.
“As nearly perfect a haunted-house tale as I have ever read . . . Stepping into Hill House is like stepping into the mind of a madman; it isn't long before you weird yourself out”
“No one can touch her”
“An amazing writer”
“Not only the best haunted-house story ever written, but also a quiet subversion of the ingénue trope in horror fiction”
“The world of Shirley Jackson is eerie and unforgettable . . . She is a true master”
A. M. Homes
“The quintessential haunted-house story . . . A masterpiece of edgy tension and creeping terror”
“A novel which at one stroke puts her unquestionably among the great masters of the genre . . . as spine-chilling as anything Edgar Allan Poe dreamed up”
