Power and haunting, and nights of unrest were typical reader responses. Shirley Jackson (1919-65) wrote several books, including Hangsaman, Life Among the Savages, and We Have Always Lived in the Castle. For the last twenty years of her life, she lived in North Bennington, Vermont.
When Shirley Jackson's chilling story "The Lottery" was first published in 1948 in The New Yorker, it generated more letters than any work of fiction the magazine had ever published. Readers were furious, disgusted, occasionally curious, and almost uniformly bewildered. The public outcry over the story can be attributed, in part, to The New Yorker's practice at the time of publishing works without identifying them as fact or fiction.
