Reviews

Since the mysterious death of four family members, the superstitious Mary Katherine "Merricat" Blackwood, her ailing uncle Julian, and agoraphobic sister Constance have lived in a bizarre but contented state of isolation. But when cousin Charles arrives in search of the Blackwood fortune, a terrible family secret is revealed. Bernadette Dunne's reading is flawlessly paced and suspenseful. The voices she provides the cast of characters are spot on: precocious Merricat is haunted and increasingly desperate; Constance is doting but detached; Uncle Julian is both pleasantly dotty and utterly unnerving; and Charles is the conniving villain listeners will love to hate. A treat for fans of mystery and suspense. (June) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

"A marvelous elucidation of life...a story full of craft and full of mystery" --The New York Times Book Review"A witch's brew of eerie power and startling novelty" --The New York Times "I was thrilled by the genuine but meaningful strangeness of Shirley Jackson's We Have Always Lived in the Castle." --George Saunders "Jackson's novel is so wonderfully creepy that students usually feel subversive just for reading it. Add to that one of the most brilliantly realized unreliable narrators in fiction and the book becomes irresistible." --Marlon James
