The Haunting of Hill House (Movie Tie-In) Paperback -

by Shirley Jackson


About this book

The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson is widely considered one of the best literary ghost stories published during the twentieth century. The novel has been adapted to film twice — in 1963 and again in 1999 — both times under the title The Haunting. The Gothic tale tells the story of socially repressed Eleanor Vance and three others who head to Hill House to partake in an experiment involving paranormal activities.

From the publisher

The greatest haunted house story ever written and the inspiration for a 10-part Netflix series directed by Mike Flanagan and starring Michiel Huisman, Carla Gugino, and Timothy Hutton. First published in 1959, Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House has been hailed as a perfect work of unnerving terror. It is the story of four seekers who
arrive at a notoriously unfriendly pile called Hill House: Dr. Montague, an occult
scholar looking for solid evidence of a "haunting"; Theodora, his lighthearted
assistant; Eleanor, a friendless, fragile young woman well acquainted with
poltergeists; and Luke, the future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems
destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable phenomena. But Hill
House is gathering its powers--and soon it will choose one of them to make its
own.

First Edition Identification

The Viking Press first published The Haunting of Hill House in New York in 1959. The dust jacket of first editions display the original price of $3.95.
