While she's finally starting to see a reemergence into the mainstream thanks to Netflix's series "The Haunting of Hill House," the fact that Shirley Jackson is still primarily known as a minor voice is one of the great failures of 20th century American Literature. At the risk of understating it, there is no modern horror genre without Shirley Jackson. And yet her focuses always lie so far beyond simple thrills and jump-scares: "We Have Always Lived in the Castle" is one of those obvious classics that reads like extant fable, and which is by turns melancholic, intriguing, sweet, funny, and yes, horrifying. This novel is almost entirely without flaw and remains entrancingly rereadable.
