Personal Quote:

[about the hate mail she received upon the 1948 publication of her story "The Lottery"] If I thought this was a valid cross-section of the reading public, I would give up writing.

Trivia:

Jack Ketchum narrated ten pages from Jackson's legendary horror novel "The Haunting of Hill House", which was made into The Haunting (1963). The reading took place in Burlington, Massachusetts, at the annual "Shirley Jackson Awards for Outstanding Achievement in the Literature of Psychological Suspense, Horror, and the Dark Fantastic".
