    PDF/EPUB Susan Scarf Merrell È PDF/EPUB Shirley ePUB À È nuiun.de shirley epub, 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 could ever imagine Some critics argue that it depicts her too negatively but I disagree She could be a very disagreeable person by all historical accounts and to show her without these flaws would be a far worse tragedy

    PDF/EPUB Susan Scarf Merrell È PDF/EPUB Shirley ePUB À È nuiun.de shirley epub, 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 t

    PDF/EPUB Susan Scarf Merrell È PDF/EPUB Shirley ePUB À È nuiun.de shirley epub, Shirley PDFSusan Scarf Merrell’s novel Shirley is a fun and new way to explore the world of Shirley Jackson Merrell’s work is extremely well written and achieves a vibe very similar to Jackson’s own work I had not heard much about this book before reading it but I became intrigued in checking it out before the upcoming movie adaptation Shirley a novel labeled as a psychological thriller manages to tell a new and fictionalized tale of mystery while also combining aspects from Jackson’s life and background If a reader is unfamiliar with Shirley Jackson’s life or work this novel may be one they will not get as much out of due to references The book is narrated by a fictional young woman named Rose Nemser as she and her husband Fred move in with and befriend Shirley Jac

    PDF/EPUB Susan Scarf Merrell È PDF/EPUB Shirley ePUB À È nuiun.de shirley epub, 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
