We Have Always Lived in the Castle - Shirley Jackson, Thomas Ott, Jonathan Lethem The story of the remaining members of the Blackwood family and the history behind how they came to be the only residents living in a sprawling estate.

Absolutely DELICIOUS. This book has been showing up on “must read” lists for eons and yet I’ve always managed to avoid it. While some “classics” just make me sad because they don’t live up to the hype, this was not the case with “We Have Always Lived in the Castle”. Over 50 years old and completely transcends time. Jackson is brilliant.

Added bonus - just LOOK at the history of this library book - not to mention the old book smell . . .
