DescriptionThis is a useful source for locating secondary materials pertaining to Shirley Jackson and her work. It includes both reviews from the time of publication and critical works. The annotations and introduction contribute to Jackson scholarship by arguing that some of her fiction has been misread and mislabelled due to the perceived meaning of the signifier "Shirley Jackson". No previously published study catalogues the texts which include stories by Jackson. The volume includes a list of anthologies, and the comments editors make about the stories and Jackson herself, a section on Jackson's work in textbooks, and a section on adaptations of her work.
