Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Alone since four members of the family died of arsenic poisoning, Merricat, Constance and Julian Blackwood spend their days in happy isolation until cousin Charles appears.


Review:

"The effect of the book does not only depend on mysery or suspense; nor on the casual intimations of evil that Miss Jackson can put in a phrase....The effect depends rather on her ability to specify a real world which is at once more sane and more mad than the world we see....The havoc [Cousin Charles] wreaks, and the unsuspected denouement of the action, bring into soft focus the human ambivalences of guilt and atonement, love and hate, health and psychosis....Shirley Jackson has once again effected a marvelous elucidation of life in the ageless form of a story full of craft and full of mystery."

Chab Hassan, New York Times Book Review, 9/23/62
