Becky Gormley Years ago I read a Shirley Jackson story that was very strange (of course). The story was about a strange young woman. First she went to a store and bought a dress or outfit that didn’t suit her at all and seemed to shock everyone who saw her. Then she got in a cab to go somewhere and said lots of goofy things. At her destination there was a man that she interacted with. Does this ring a bell with anyone? I’m going nuts trying to figure out the title so I can read it again.


message 2: by Lum (new) - added it

Lum I think you're referring to the daemon lover?


Becky Gormley No, I reread that to be sure. The Daemon Lover was quite normal compared to the story I’m trying to remember..


Csilla have you found it? if it's not the daemon lover, then it's not in this particular anthology.
