Opening Sentence of the Day: We Have Always Lived in the Castle

My name is Mary Katherine Blackwood.

-- We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson. This is a crazy weird book. Very funny in a creepy way.

This is on Erica Jong's list of Top 100 20th Century Novels by Women.


  1. Just came from a blog with a review The day we had Grippe! that was also good.

  2. Ooh! I love that creepy cover! The book sounds fun as well!

  3. Haunting cover. Especially with the black and white. Happy gardening as well. :-)
