THE SUNDIAL

by Jackson, Shirley

Condition: See description


New York: Farrar, Straus and Cudahy, (1958). First edition. Twelve occupants of a mansion await the end of the world believing they will be the only survivors. 8vo gray cloth backed black paper boards; spine stamped in black; top edge yellow. Near fine in like dust jacket with mild shelf wear. From the collection of sports writer Paul "Dr. Z" Zimmerman with his penciled notations on rear endpaper.

Before there was Hill House, there was the Halloran mansion of Jackson’s stunningly creepy fourth novel, The Sundial . When the Halloran clan gathers at the family home for a funeral, no one is surprised when the somewhat peculiar Aunt Fanny wanders off into the secret garden. But then she returns to report an astonishing vision of an apocalypse from which only the Hallorans and their hangers-on will be spared, and the family finds itself engulfed in growing madness, fear, and violence as they prepare for a terrible new world.
