Publisher: Penguin Books Ltd. | 2009 | Mass Market Paperback | 256 p. | This book is brand new. | Series: PENGUIN MODERN CLASSICS | Language: Engelska --- Information regarding the book: The best-known of Shirley Jackson's novels and a major inspiration for writers like Neil Gaiman and Stephen King as well as the hit Netflix series, The Haunting of Hill House is a chilling story of the power of fear 'Shirley Jackson's stories are among the most terrifying ever written' Donna Tartt Alone in the world, Eleanor is delighted to take up Dr Montague's invitation to spend a summer in the mysterious Hill House. Joining them are Theodora, an artistic 'sensitive', and Luke, heir to the house.
