So, is Shirley Jackson the love child of Alfred Hitchcock and Tim Burton or what?

Seriously freaky and really, really good - because the characters, beyond eccentric, are also portrayed as victims entirely worthy of sympathy. Even (view spoiler)

Jennifer (aka EM) not at all - I should warn you, there are bite marks on the first half and the bottom of p.53/54 has been chewed fairly thoroughly. Have repaired so it is readable.

xoxoxox, Oliver



Jason Aw, that's cute. I'll continue the tradition for Oliver's sake. I'll bite off a few pages before sending it on to the next person. =)

Jennifer (aka EM) I have effected a bloody ingenious repair. When you see the damaged paragraphs, I know you are going to agree that they are too important not to fix so you could read them carefully. :-)


Jason I just received it today! Deckled edges and Oliver chewings. How unique! Thanks a million, Jen. I'm looking forward to reading it. =)


Jennifer (aka EM) glad you rec'd it! yes, what you have there is a one of a kind edition!
