Shirley Jackson ☆ 7 Summary

Tart furnaces that break down a pugnacious corner bully household help that never stays and a patient capable hu. This is an hilarious autobiographical account of Shirley Jackson and her husband raising 2 then 3 then 4 children in a small Vermont town I listened to the audio version narrated by Lesa Lockford and I thought she was excellentThis has to be the funniest audiobook I ve ever heard It consists of vignettes regarding daily life such as a bus trip to the store for school clothes with 3 children a doll carriage a doll etc or a game of musical chairs except it involves a sick household and beds instead of chairs Somehow Shirley threads all of these short stories into a narrative that I think most mothers will relate to even though it took place in the 1940 s written in the 50 sIt s difficult to believe that this is the same author of some of my favorite books The Haunting of Hill House because the tone and style is so different What is the same is the master level of story telling landing you right in the house among the savages 4 stars for the story 1 additional star for the wonderful narration Highly recommendedYou can buy your copy here
