The Lottery by Shirley Jackson

Shirley Jackson was a popular and controversial American author, who was born in December 14, 1916. She is best known for the short story The Lottery (1948).  She is also well known for the 1959 novel The Haunting of Hill House, which was adapted in the 1963 Robert Wise film The Haunting.  She has influenced such writers as Neil Gaiman, Stephen King, Nigel Kneale, and Richard Matheson.

Jackson's husband, the literary critic Stanley Edgar Hyman, wrote that "she consistently refused to be interviewed, to explain or promote her work in any fashion...She believed that her books would speak for her clearly enough over the years."
