    PDF Susan Scarf Merrell ç Shirley ePUB ò ç shirley kindle, Shirley PDFThoroughly exceeds expectations Shirley Jackson is an author of legendary talent and I'll admit to being hesitant about having anyone tread on such sacred ground Have no fear This story weaves Jackson's biography into a tale that's nearly as Gothic as one of her novels Astonishingly it makes Shirley an even intriguing figure than I co

    PDF Susan Scarf Merrell ç Shirley ePUB ò ç shirley kindle, Shirley PDFShirley Jackson is like Jane Austen she only lived to write six novels and she died in her forties leaving the tantalizing beginnings of a novel unlike any other she'd written Both authors have shelves of their very own in my apartment because I have multiple editions of everything they ever wrote as well as lots of books about the writers and their workAusten is the greater writer of the two but I have to say that Jackson is my favorite Not just of the pair but of all time Austen taught me to read; Shirley Jackson made me think I could be a writerSo of course when I saw this novel about her I was conflicted I wasn't sure I wanted to read it but I felt as if I had to if only so I could tear the author a new one if she screwed up portraying my ShirleyI'm a cranky old lady when it comes to novelizations of the fairly recently departed Historical figures don't bother me because nobody can know what they were rea

    PDF Susan Scarf Merrell ç Shirley ePUB ò ç shirley kindle, Shirley PDFSeveral weekends ago I watched the movie Shirley It’s a good movie satisfying in a number of ways But I was increasingly bothered by its pretense that Jackson had no children—who in real life were a huge part of Jackson’s life and work The movie makes no claim at being a biopic but the children’s nonexistence came to seem to me lazy—as if the filmmakers couldn’t be bothered to figure out how to incorporate children in the story they wanted to tell I turned to the novel the movie was based on to see how it handled the existence of the children They’re mentioned almost right away The oldest is married and the youngest is twelve at its start The book covers 19645; the movie seems to be set in the late 40svery early 50s when Jackson in real life would’ve been working on her second novel while taking care of t

    PDF Susan Scarf Merrell ç Shirley ePUB ò ç shirley kindle, Shirley PDF35 Flying back from America the other week I must have started about a dozen different books on my Nook but none of them ‘took’ until this one It’s a gently creepy psychological thriller that imagines a young married couple boarding with Shirley Jackson and her husband Stanley Hyman while the two men were professors at Bennington College in Vermont in 1964Our narrator is Rose Nemser married and pregnant at just 19 Stuck at home during the days she observes all the inner workings of this unusual family apparently Jackson mother of four was a closeted lesbian and Stanley slept with his students and sneaks peeks at Shirley’s work in progress once even trying her hand at a pastiche The dilapidated Hyman mansion reminds Rose of Jackson’s fictional Hill H

    PDF Susan Scarf Merrell ç Shirley ePUB ò ç shirley kindle, Shirley PDF35 rounded upThis is a decidedly odd amalgamation of fictionalized biography and psychological thriller that intentionally apes Jackson's own work It doesn't UITE work mainly because of a perhaps too reverent reading of the character of Jackson herself plus a mystery that doesn't really hold much tension the conclusion is foreshadowed really before one finishes the first few chapters It is mainly centered on the narrator's own fascination she calls it love for the author juxtaposed against her somewhat shaky marriage to a protégé of Jackson's husband who unfortunately follows him into the minefield of infidelity While I am not sure she truly captures the Hymans the prose is uite skillful it's uick paced and it is rather a kick that t

    PDF Susan Scarf Merrell ç Shirley ePUB ò ç shirley kindle, Shirley PDFpretty bad and unsatisfying as a psychological thriller weird in an also bad gimmicky way as fictionalized imagining of shirley and her family seems like merrell wanted to write a book in jackson's vein unreliable neurotic girl narrator but she unfortunately does not have the same gift for turn of phrase and her attempt to make the jackson home a character à la the haunting does not particularly work constant inorganic name dropping of titles from shirley's oeuvre a fantastic waste of research imo; imagine being in the library of congress riffling through shirley's papers and only having a web of shit to show for it
