Read in October, 2009

This book was a charming surprise! I bought it years ago while working at a used bookstore, and it's a very old and original copy with no dustjacket--I had no clue what it was about but loving Shirley Jackson I decided to dive in head first. I cannot imagine what people at the time must have thought of this book---I found it a funny and charmingly honest description of running a household full of kids and pets and a husband--and Ms. Jackson's amazing way with words is just a applicable here as in any of her other work--her writing style for me is like sticky flypaper--it just gets a hold of me and won't let go--love, love, loved this book!
