    Hun drejede bilen ind på det sidste stykke af indkørslen og befandt sig pludselig ansigt til ansigt med Hill House, og uden at tænke trampede hun bremsen i bund og stirrede måbende frem for sig.Huset var afskyeligt. Hun skælvede, og i hendes sind opstod uden videre tanken: Hill House er afskyeligt, det er sygt; skynd dig væk herfra med det samme. Fire søgende sjæle flytter ind i det forladte Hill House, der står stolt og uligevægtigt mellem sine bakker. Dag for dag strammer huset sit greb om dem. Det smækker med dørene, hvisker i natten og rækker ud ef­ter dem med sit mørke. Måske bør de alle bryde op, før det er for sent. Men Hill House er ved at samle sine kræfter, og det har ikke i sinde at slippe gæsterne så let. Shirley Jacksons Mørket i Hill House (engelsk: The Hauting of Hill House) er skrevet i 1959 og anses for en af det tyvende århundredes bedste gyserromaner. Den er forlæg for to film og en populær tv-serie på Netflix. Dette er første gang, romanen udkommer på dansk.

    Lige siden giftmordet, der tog livet af næsten hele familien Blackwood, har de lokale set skævt til huset bag det høje hegn. Merricat Blackwood bor der stadig med sin søster Constance og deres gamle onkel, og livet går roligt videre for dem alle tre. Constance pusler i haven og køkkenet, onkel Julian nusser med sine papirer, og Merricat begraver sølvmønter ved bækken og hvisker hemmelige ord i mørket for at holde dem fri for onde øjne. Men der er forandring på vej. Da søstrenes fætter Charles trænger ind i huset og begynder at forstyrre de faste rutiner, er det kun Merri­cat, der aner faren. Og kun hun kan drive ham bort, før det er for sent, og Blackwoodfamiliens hemmeligheder kommer frem i lyset. Vi har altid boet på slottet et af Shirley Jacksons mesterværker.

    Elizabeth Richmond er stille og ordentlig. Hun nærer ingen stærke følelser, hverken for sit kedelige job eller den aparte tante Morgen, hun bor hos. Men pludselig begynder hendes ensformige liv at brydes af sære optrin, anonyme trusselsbreve og spildte timer, hun ikke kan gøre rede for. Ved psykiateren doktor Wrights tvivlsomme mellemkomst begynder det langsomt at stå klart, at der er mere end én personlighed på spil i Elizabeths krop, og snart bliver både tante og doktor vidne til den bizarre magtkamp, der udspiller sig mellem den unge kvindes stridende personaer. Fuglereden giver et indfølende og humoristisk portræt af en spaltet personlighed og kaster lys over den galskab, som sitrer lige under overfladen hos os alle.Shirley Jackson (1916-1965) var med sin sorte humor, sine sære karakterer og sin foruroligende indsigt i menneskesindets skyggesider en af det tyvende århundredes mest banebrydende forfatterstemmer.

    The unsettling story of a young woman's descent into mental illness, from the author of The Haunting of Hill House and We Have Always Lived at the Castle. 'An amazing writer' Neil GaimanElizabeth Richmond is almost too quiet to be believed, with no friends, no parents, and a job that leaves her strangely unnoticed. But soon she starts to behave in ways she can neither control nor understand, to the increasing horror of her doctor, and the humiliation of her self-centred aunt. As a tormented Elizabeth becomes two people, then three, then four, each wilder and more wicked than the last, a battle of wills threatens to destroy the girl and all who surround her. The Bird's Nest is a macabre journey into who we are, and how close we sometimes come to the brink of madness.

    "Jackson at her best: plumbing the extraordinary from the depths of mid-twentieth-century common. [Just an Ordinary Day] is a gift to a new generation."-San Francisco ChronicleAcclaimed in her own time for her short story "The Lottery" and her novel The Haunting of Hill House-classics ranking with the work of Edgar Allan Poe-Shirley Jackson blazed a path for contemporary writers with her explorations of evil, madness, and cruelty. Soon after her untimely death in 1965, Jackson's children discovered a treasure trove of previously unpublished and uncollected stories, many of which are brought together in this remarkable collection. Here are tales of torment, psychological aberration, and the macabre, as well as those that display her lighter touch with humorous scenes of domestic life. Reflecting the range and complexity of Jackson's talent, Just an Ordinary Day reaffirms her enduring influence and celebrates her singular voice, rich with magic and resonance. Praise for Shirley Jackson "[Jackson's] work exerts an enduring spell."-Joyce Carol Oates "Shirley Jackson's stories are among the most terrifying ever written."-Donna Tartt "An amazing writer . . . If you haven't read [Jackson] you have missed out on something marvelous."-Neil Gaiman "Shirley Jackson is unparalleled as a leader in the field of beautifully written, quiet, cumulative shudders."-Dorothy Parker "An author who not only writes beautifully but who knows what there is, in this world, to be scared of."-Francine Prose "The world of Shirley Jackson is eerie and unforgettable."-A. M. Homes "Jackson enjoyed notoriety and commercial success within her lifetime, and yet it still hardly seems like enough for a writer so singular. When I meet readers and other writers of my generation, I find that mentioning her is like uttering a holy name."-Victor LaValle

    Shirley Jackson e rbredt anerkendt for sin underspillede horror og uhyggelige sans for menneskesindets skyggesider, og klassikerne 'Lotteriet', 'Mørket i Hill House' og 'Vi har altid boet på slottet' er blevet genopdaget i hele verden.Men samtidig med, at hun var det makabres mester, var Shirley Jackson en skarpsynet portrættør af hverdagens familieliv. 'Livet blandt de vilde' er en samling af hendes ætsende morsomme og stærkt selvbiografiske fortællinger om at være forfatter på deltid og hjemmegående husmor på fuldtid i 1960’ernes USA –en jobbeskrivelse, der kunne være lige så frygtindgydende som hendes mørkeste gyserhistorier. SomJ ackson skriver: “Af og til griber jeg mig i, i min egenskab af mor, at sidde måbende og rædselsslagen over for mine egne børn”.I fortællingerne slås hun med rotter i kælderen, ustyrlige usynlige venner, en lykkeligt uvidende ægtemand og et evigt voksende husligt kaos. Hun skriver kærligt, men altid med bid; Shirley Jackson nægter at idealisere moderrollen, og under det hyggelige familierod ligger en subversiv kritik af samtidens kvinderolle.

    »Tanken om at smadre det tunge askebæger ned i hans hoved var aldrig tidligere faldet Margaret ind, men nu kunne hun ikke komme af med den. Hun flyttede uroligt på sig i stolen og tænkte: Sikke en forfærdelig tanke at få, hvad i alverden fik mig dog til at tænke sådan?«fra novellen ‘Sikke en tanke’Shirley Jacksons ‘Lotteriet’ er blandt det engelske sprogs mest læste og omdiskuterede noveller. I denne samling, der for første gang præsenterer Jacksons korte fiktion på dansk, optræder den sammen med 19 andre særligt udvalgte fortællinger. Nogle er skæve og humoristiske, andre behandler menneskers hverdagsondskab og fremmedgørelse for sig selv, og andre igen er næsten rene gyserhistorier. Fælles for dem alle er, at de hver især er præget af Jacksons følsomme og mørkt humoristiske udforskning af den menneskelige psykologi og det moderne livs subtile uhygge.Shirley Jackson (1916-1965) var foregangskvinde inden for den moderne gotiske litteratur og en af det tyvende århundredes mest indflydelsesrige forfattere. Hun har inspireret en lang række forfattere inden for gyser- og gotikgenren, bl.a. Stephen King og Donna Tartt, og har også en stor fanskare blandt danske forfattere.

Hvem er ’den rigtige’ Elizabeth? Hvilken rolle spiller tante Morgen? Har dr. Wright rent mel i posen? Hvem tør man tro på?Fuglereden er et mesterværk fra Shirley Jacksons hånd. Vi ledes og forledes, vi opdager, at intet er, som det ser ud, og at gåden ikke nemt lader sig løse. Siri Ranva Hjelm Jacobsen skriver i bogens forord:»Romanen stiller sin læser over for et mysterium, et stykke detektivarbejde. Den giver tegn, der skal tydes, lokker med falske ledetråde, er en kode, der skal knækkes. Fortællerperspektivet skifter fra karakter til karakter. Som læser må man vælge, hvem man vil tro på, men Shirley Jackson giver ingen simple svar. I hendes univers er svaret sjældent enten/eller.«

    En rigtig gyser foregår i hjemmet. Huset som den ukendte modstander går helt tilbage til Horace Walpoles Slottet i Otranto fra 1764, og det bruges stadig i horrorlitteraturen i dag. Det, der burde være vores base og vores skjold, vender sig pludselig imod os. Sådan er det også i Shirley Jacksons mesterværk fra 1959, hvor huset har den altoverskyggende hovedrolle. I Mørket i Hill House følger vi fire søgende sjæle. De flytter ind i det forladte Hill House, der står stolt og uligevægtigt mellem sine bakker. Dag for dag strammer huset sit greb om dem. Det smækker med dørene, hvisker i natten og rækker ud ef­ter dem med sit mørke. Måske bør de alle bryde op, før det er for sent.
