Shirley You Jest (or Not)

August 2nd, 2020

So we watched the recent movie Shirley. Great performances, interesting concept. It wasn’t what I hoped for, but it was based on a work of fiction, a writer’s interpretation of what she drew from an idea of Shirley Jackson’s life.  Don’t let it deter you from reading the novels of one of the great writers of the fiction of the dark and strange sides of life.

Here are links online and a brief list of what I’d recommend to start with.
