Review:

"...It's nice to have Jackson back again."

Kirkus, 11/01/1996

Review:

"To put it most simply, Shirley Jackson wrote about the mundane evils hidden in everyday life and about the warring and subsuming of selves in a family, a community and sometimes even in a single mind. She wrote about prejudice, neurosis and identity....Jackson's forté was psychology and society, people in other words - people disturbed, dispossessed, misunderstanding or thwarting one another compulsively, people colluding absently in monstrous acts....She's also terribly funny. Her observations are dry, her dialogue shockingly fresh and absurd, and her best stories can make you think of a collaboration between James Thurber and a secular Flannery O'Connor.... She reaches that height perhaps nine or ten times in the fifty-five stories and pieces in 'Just an Ordinary Day'....For these stories alone the book is worthwhile--for longtime converts, for anyone."

Jonathan Lethem, Salon, 01/06/1997
