(BIO GENERAL)

A thorough and intimate portrait of not only a life, but an era—one in which it was difficult to balance the roles of writer, woman, mother, and wife. If you're already a fan, Franklin's bio will delight and intrigue with her insights. If you haven't read Shirley Jackson, I recommend beginning with The Haunting the Hill House or The Lottery, then delving into this bio. Shirley Jackson is one of the 20th century's greatest writers; Ruth Franklin has done her legacy justice.
